Despite the predictably oversold "wanting success bad; assimilating to group good" message, the movie had enough quirky visuals to keep it entertaining. The ending is a lukewarm wrap-up, but definitely entertaining throughout. Solid acting.
I really don't know what to think about it besides how fantastic the performances were and how masterful the filmmaking was. The dark cinematography, setting, dialogue, and performances from Pattinson and Dafoe made for an extremely unique movie experience.
