    A few things about this film.

    1. It's way too long.
    2. The acting, directing, and technical aspects of the film are exactly as they should be. Fantastic.
    3. I'm not sure why I watched it apart from the aspects mentioned in #2 above.
    4. Don't do drugs.
    5. People are horrible.

    That is all.
