Waste of time.

Bored to freaking death.

slow burner .

There was a feeling or mood about it that was enjoyable and interesting.

found myself hating their neighbors for being so uneventful, What is up with all these long movie titles that are basically whole sentences?

Hard to follow, horrible setting, unexhilarating plot.

Painfully dull .

Just watched this movie and utter pointless bore.

This was another movie that was boring to me.

Boring beginning to end.

Legitimately nothing happens, and when it does you no longer care.

The characters are intriguing, particularly the sisters, and the acting was very good.

This film is a total mess targeted to no one, filled with the most unlikable characters ever that lead a totally non-sensical history where nothing happens.

Most of movies is bad and boring.

Slow-moving, more than anything.

Rather mundane .

A Huge Waste of Time .

As a book, it may have promise as it could delve further into the complexities of the character various neuroses, but as a movie, it's a yawner

It is obvious that anyone who pretended to enjoy it was just trying to seem progressive and "artsy fartsy", because this film actually made me want to get in my car and drive into a tree going 90mph.

Every time something mildly interesting would present itself to the plot I would think "Here we go, things are about to get good" and then sure enough they would just fall off the radar and go back to the bland, boring nonsense that had come before.

Yet, it is compelling to see how crazy people intertwine in each others' visions and plans and fight for their dominance in the house.

Boring, dull, uneventful.

Enigmatic, unresolved, but intriguing .

This movie was a complete and utter waste of time.

A little boring .

This movie was so boring and stupid .

The movie was very predictable.

Great acting (even from the briefest of support actors) worth watching just for that.

Just awful, slow overacted nonsense.

Boring .

Save your time, nothing happens in this film.

Intriguing .

It was absurd and it went nowhere.

And too much boring conversation on the eating table!

If your bored with nothing else to watch, then go for it.

The bad news is if you're waiting for something exciting to happen, then you're going to have to wait til the very end.

Boring and rambling .

It was odd characters and lots of boring lines.


Otherwise, it's well acted, surprising and suspenseful.

Slow and boring .

Other than that, don't waste your time.

Although the acting was superb, but the story is so boring and felt really forced to be so long.

This movie was painfully slow and boring.

It rambles and is down right boring.

Definitely slow and intriguing, which can still make for a good film.

Massive Waste of Time.

This is a slow paced film that has very little to offer in thrills or suspense.

great production value, no story .

Dull as dishwater .

So this was waste of time, this girl killed everone in familiy for no reason and got away with it and she is shown at end as she is some sort gangsta now,lol

There were times I laughed at the audacity of the characters' behavior, yet it all made sense to me and I really enjoyed it.

Nothing happened in the end to satisfy the audiences.

Bit unusual and unpredictable behavior of all, especially two girls.

The pacing is also very slow.

There are many scenes where I was just super confused about (like Marricat's actions and their dark past and the interactions with each character) However, as I watched on, I was captivated and my confusion turned into curiosity instead.

" I think the casting and acting are perfect, the cinematography is beautiful, but really, this movie will seem rather pointless if you miss any of the latent clues.
