    Blech. I guess every generation needs its overrated director.

    A better adaptation than Annihilation but still the film is insufficient to the story. I feel like this could have been a great limited series, maybe six episodes. I did not like the way it was directed and edited - too many flashbacks, overly sentimental at times and too much ellipsis. I see how they were trying to mirror the psychological state of the protagonist but this requires knowing when to employ these devices and when to pull back and let the narrative unfold. It is out of balance and pushes the viewer out of engagement with the film.
