Wow this was way more enjoyable than it had any right to be.
I don’t need to see another movie that excuses horrible behavior for the sake of brilliant art. Being a genius does not preclude one from also being a decent human being. I will say the second half got a lot better but I still don’t think the first hour of torture was worth it.
The only other time I got this close to walking out of the theater was Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, and I regret this being my first PTA movie.
