Wonderfully naturalistic with a lack of overproduction. Puts you in a place with these people and never feels inauthentic. Commendably sheds light on a difficult subject. There's a really beautiful, if humble, funeral ceremony captured towards the end of the film that is worth the price of admission alone.
It's weird to see people bending over backwards to be forgiving of a movie that they admit isn't even scary, original, or well-crafted. There's a hive-mind self-hypnosis thing going on where people want to believe they didn't waste their $15 and 2h15m. The only notable moment of peril in this whole movie is in the first one minute of its runtime and then literally zero remotely scary or tense things happen from there. Instead we tread through a filmmaking-by-commitee attempt…
