So, once these college kids get to the festival (with one of their girlfriends tagging along), they find that this festival is very screwed up.
I don’t have anything nice to say about this film…wait, the cinematography was occasionally top-notch. Otherwise, this artsy-fartsy, sorry excuse of a movie is really just about a girl trying to get her boyfriend to listen to her, and that is just not enough to sustain a 2 1/2 hour film; everything else is filler. Sure, something jarring (and I thought, needlessly graphic) happens, then it goes back to…well, I’m not going to go on anymore. But, if you want to watch as a group of clueless, moronic horn-dogs get their comeuppance, then by all means, be my guest. I have not been so bored in a movie since Wickerman.
This is me about midway through
Overlong, weird and boring, I’ll recommend you avoid this at all costs. There are no extra scenes after the credits roll.
