Scott Hardie: “It sucked.”
I don't necessarily mind when plot takes over from what initially seems to be a gentle character film, but I do mind when apparently intelligent people do really stupid things just to advance that plot. At every turning point, you instinctively think of what the character should do, and then watch him or her do the exact opposite, and you just want to scream. Are we supposed to feel sorry for victims in thrillers when they bring it on themselves? I keep hoping someone will notice Chaplin's talent, but he keeps appearing in garbage like this.
