ArronRoke’s review published on Letterboxd:
This was the second time I watched it. The first time I hated it. The second was no different.
I love Kubrick, he is my favourite director. A genius and perfectionist no doubt about that.
But this is just shit. Any people online that have said that reading an article makes this film better is a complete tool. A film is to make you feel something other than completely bored. The amazing cinematography and camera shots are outstanding.....but it's that what makes a good film ??? Absolutely not.
To give 5 stars for a film with no story but a good musical score and camera shots is pathetic. It's the cinematic equivalent of someone pretentiously liking a blank canvas with a red square on, then selling it for millions and saying it's revolutionary.
Unless you are in E's, magic mushrooms or ketamine don't waste 2 hours 28 minutes on this. Go paint a canvas and sell it for millions.
