A bit pretentious and self-important at times - though arguably this is intentional, as that's exactly what the protagonist is as well. It's definitely lacking in any significant drive or structure to propel things forward and sometimes becomes rambling and tedious because of this. All that said, I really appreciated the ultimate redemptiveness of the message, and the film contains a lot of rich truth and authentic humanity that won't be forgotten.
It would have been so easy for a film like this to devolve into aimless, depressing melodrama and moping without a clear purpose or a truly engaging core. But thanks to the superb direction and performances, the whole thing manages to be extremely redemptive and human, even when things are at their most somber. Really enjoyed it, and excited to rewatch.
