Don't bother - disjointed story line, weak protagonist, how did this get funded?!
20 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

This movie should never have been made and wasting the funds of Film 4 and BFI which could be used to make better films in its place. I wish I had never bothered wasting my time or money on a ticket to see this film as I will never get those minutes of my life back.

The back story to the protagonist (Pheonix) was very weak and not all of the flash backs to his past were relevant or made any sense as to why the character was that way or as to what he was doing. The story line for the movie is pretty much non existence. It is near impossible to understand why 2 key actions were done by the characters candidate and his daughter and the flow of the movie is missing large chunks of story line and there isn't even the ability to make a leap of faith in trying to connect the story for something to click later in the movie - it makes no sense, if someone can explain all the things then I am open to listening.

On a side note to the director - I attended this at London Film Festival and if you are too shy to talk to the BFI staff on stage to introduce the film and fail to return to a promised Q&A then don't bother showing up and walking off before answering any questions.
