Sean Patrick Stevens's rating of the film Slaughterhouse-Five

Editing feels Nicholas Roeg-y but I'm not sure this version really capture the humor in the novel- it might be impossible? I did find effective the scenes after the war with Billy Pilgrim and his family. Those scenes in the "present" captured the post-war meaninglessness quite well but the past and the future seem silly and dated to me but interesting to think how they tried to do it.
