What an unbelievably bad movie, I was stunned...by how pretentious it was. How could anybody give a lick about the story within the story? I couldn't care less, which in turn made me care less about the backstory and the present day BS. I laughed many a times at the absurdity of what was unfolding on the big screen, especially the end. The flick is indeed all style. Style is all it has. Well, some good performances too, but mainly style. What a disappointment.
