What in the name of God was THAT? The main character should have been locked up from the start and basically spends the entire film… well, not even sure what to say, working out whether he’s straight or gay (or at times an animal…)…? Carey Mulligan’s role was intrigueing and, unlike the main character, she did a great job. She did sound rather weird trying to speak American. It took 40 minutes before anything actually happened. The score serves its purpose, but that’s all. The Bach source music really worked. Never again.
