I read the reivews, and about half of them compalin of being boring. It is a very artsy film, so the camera shots are very artistic. Long, 'boring" shots of Los Angelas. Howver, I thought they were beautful. This isn't a Bruce Willis action thriller, where its more about the special effects in the action then anything else, This was a well written story that makes you think. I enjoyed it, evne though a few parts Ihad to fast forward through, like the sex scene, because it was too mch for me. The anxiety the director created with his slow moving camera angles was overwhelming. This isn't a typical movie, however one reviewer has seen movies in this similar genre which I haven't. It did remind me of Quintin Terintion prior to Death Proof. I think that movie and all after that he made have been lousy. this may not be your cup of tee, it is a very classic style. Reminds me too of Sergio Leone, and I know a lot of people would call that boring too right? Wide, beautiul shots of Italy and Mexico where there is as much to be said about the surroundings as the story itself. Apperently this is back on Netflix, as I watched it last night and this morning. I feel that this director and writer of this story deserve much more credit, and fame. I have seen many Hollywood movies in the past 5 yeras that weren't 1/8th this good, with not nearly as much skill an, talent and hard work these guys put into this movie. perhaps the story was too much for some of you, and it is a really unexcepted twist. I love this style thouygh and the directors and producers did a phenomenal job. A++++++ definately a great movie.

Dull, slow-paced, and not very entertaining. I would not recommend it to others. The screenplay could use substantial re-writing to tell the story in a convincing and compelling manner,

It was over all a pretty boring movie. There really wasn't much connection within the players as to their roles. And the ending was really sad in that violence without a clue as to why?

This story has no point. What is the moral to this story? Anybody, anybody please! I thought maybe the exploitation of the Mexican day laborer, but no no story line and how god awfully slow. Somebody give me my life back. I waited for the payoff and it never came. God forgive me for wasting an hour and a half on this movie.
