I honestly don't know how to describe this. The first half left me nauseated between the spinning camerawork and the infamous scene near the halfway mark. The second half of the movie differed though and gave the first half more substance and meaning in my opinion. Definitely don't watch this with friends or family.
What disturbed me the most in the infamous scene, is the moment a stranger walks into the passage (you see him in the background) sees what's happening, but desides not to help and go back up instead... That unknown son of a btch
This film has one of the most disturbing scenes in cinematic history.
