Saw this today after reading various reviews & thoughts on it, including one that advised me to read as little as possible before seeing.

Suffice to say, it's one of the most bonkers films I've ever seen, and I've seen a fair few. Top marks to all the creators involved. What I find fascinating is that it's a work that has completely polarised opinion, there's no middle ground. The last film I can remember to have the same effect was Only God Forgives, which I loved, but I can completely understand the opposite view.

It's great when stuff like this comes out and provokes such debate, it keeps things vibrant and what good art should be about.

Very interested to know what fellow posters who have seen it think.

I thought it was utterly brilliant and one of the best films I have seen in the last decade.
I did mis-read the film initially, but within an hour of seeing it the pieces fell into place.
It's been a couple of days since I saw it and I still can't shake it from my head.
