There is no one review for everybody. You pick your crowd.
Please read the following slowly and calmly
This movie, like Primer, requires a prohibitively high intelligence, to be appreciated. Though this time, it's more the emotional intelligence. Unfortunately, most people are way below that level. That is a simple observed fact. And unfortunately, it is the case, that any sufficiently high intelligence is indistinguishable from stupidity. That is not anyone's fault. It is just the unconnected mess that's left when one can't make the connections. How is anyone to distinguish that from being offered an already unconnected mess? That's impossible! So don't blame people for giving it low ratings. In their perceived reality, it is factually bad. And nobody is more right or wrong. And don't blame people for being pretentious and "artsy" about it. Those are very empathic people; and even if they may also not have understood it all, the emotional message overwhelmed them anyway.
If you are daring enough though, make sure you have the mind of a Sherlock Holmes, and the sensitivity of such an empath. And then open up. You must allow the movie to modulate your perception and your emotions. Like a hallucination with a clear mind.
If you succeeded, you will only know at the end. Remember Fight Club? It seemed like a rather depressing movie that doesn't have a lot of sense until that hair-raising realization. It's like that. Only if you get that feeling you will know which one when you get it will you know the experience arrived in your mind.
Everything else, frankly, doesn't matter.
P.S.: The split in reactions in the audience, some hating it and saying it "makes no sense", and some loving it and saying they get it, is extremely similar to what happened with Guy Richie's "Revolver". Here in Germany, it is a legend. A masterpiece. In the USA and UK, it is hated and called a "flop". As I said: You pick your crowd. But never ever underestimate your own mind. :)
