Perhaps I wasn't in the mood... but I had wanted to see this for a very long time and, frankly, I was a little disappointed. The story itself was dark, but extremely comical. Absurdity galore. The pace was a little slow, leading to some dullness - monotony, even. While that may have been the purpose, it was troublesome for me. All in the all, the practicality of it all was fantastic. Loved the presentation.
