    devilsadvocado; a bit hypocritical to call out maxdbn for 'looking down on others for not enjoying the same films as he does' and then go on to look down on him because of some of his favourite films. 7 years ago

    I don't necessarily hate the film, I just don't like it that much. For viewers praising the visuals, which are stunning by the way, I might as well watch a Nat Geo documentary about Scotland's landscapes. The movie is quite creative as it shows how an alien might interpret our world through human eyes, but do we really have to go through that puzzling experience of watching for 2 hours without a plot? I personally think you can achieve everything in this film within a 15 mins short film, maybe less, including the long takes. It could be much better served with a plot of substence. Just my 2 cents. 6 years 11 months ago

    Deeply immersive, thoughtful, and terrifying. Definitely not for everyone - there is little to no exposition, you're meant to figure out the plot by inference only.

    The original book was mostly about vegetarianism, but this is far more about the nature of being a human (and how others would view us), and some subtle observations on misogyny and 'lad' culture.

    Given the incredible visuals and great use of sound, this is probably best watched in a cinema!
