i finally watched this. i enjoyed it.
but did anyone notice how weird the editing was?
like shots will go back and forth with no real direction?
i don't really know how to verbalize it but for instance:
there's a scene where they're on a boat and it shows them looking at something in front of them
and then cuts to a shot of them from behind, from above. so it kind of looks like they're looking at themselves for a moment. there are numerous instances of this.
do you guys know what i'm talking about or am i crazy?

p.s. eli roth must REALLY hate hippies.
