    At times as viewers we'll partake in a re-watch of a viewing, and said re-watch leads to us seeing a particular film in a different light. Fortunately for the viewer, such was very much the case here.

The entire film I was searching for a reason to care about the plight of these characters. Unfortunately, that was never allowed to happen. Perhaps in a way this film was simply too fantastical for me. Whatever the ultimate reason is, I just couldn't get into…
