Hell Is Other People (Wiping Their Grubby Mitts On Your Rustic But Tasteful West Elm Furniture, Apparently)

Undeniably intense and thrilling in fits and starts, suggesting all sorts of potentially interesting avenues the film proceeds to flatly ignore in favor of thuddingly literal high school English symbolism, idiotic dorm room philosophy, and a general vibe of nominally-self-effacing-but-actually-self-aggrandizing schmuckery that can only be described as "Aronofsky-esque."
