It looked pretty. But that doesn't mean I'll ever take the opportunity to watch it again. I can tolerate a methodical snail pace of a movie, especially when there is something to meditate on or even some payoff at the end. This wasn't necessarily pointless, there just wasn't anything that I cared enough to dig deep to discover. But it sure was pretty though.
Stunning cinematography. Many films seem to shy away from such gorgeous high contrast and saturation (or maybe just saturation? I'm not good at telling the two apart once colour is in the picture).
There's a lot of complaints on IMDb about how much of a slow burner this is. I can see how that would be disappointing if you were expecting Kill Bill, but if you're patient, it works very well and gives the film a lovely rhythm.
Wow. Fantastic. Some of the best cinematography I have ever seen.
