Viewing Notes

Last movie of the festival for me was this 35mm screening, shown at 12:10 AM, so really the tail end of a very, very long day of movies. Maybe my weariness factored into it, but I just couldn’t see much value in this movie. It’s so poorly structured and senseless. The senseless real animal killings will forever cement the infamy of this film but everything else is so tame and silly, including the plot, that I don’t understand all the fuss.
