Yeah, scratch The Master from that mini rant observation but i think TOL is an appropriate comparison because of the epic but possibly meandering scope that only an art house crowd will get excited over or have the patience to sit through

I still say this will fizzle with the mainstream, it may prove to be too challenging and pretentious as someone has mentioned .

Aside from the dazzling visuals there is nothing that is grabbing my attention , it's a possible rental for me
