    1. Watched the dir's cut for the first time. LOL (to quite a lot of the added stuff).

    2. I quite like the fact that a film about the end of the world completely falls apart half way in.

    3. For the first hour this film is, like, perfect. Every shot is disciplined, every idea beautifully, succinctly, evocatively executed. And then… (see 2.)
