The performances are extraordinary, and so is the production design, but as a whole Apostle feels unfocused.

    2: The seven hours will go by faster than you think. This is a slow paced movie, but that doesn't mean it's boring.

    3: You will enter a whole new world. I felt like I was around the characters rather than…
