CGiii Comment

Regarded as a highly influential film.....

The first hour is thrill-less....a portrait of a vile photographer (the peculiar Hemmings, demonstrating the not-so fine line between ugly and beauty).

It's a dreary piece of unlikeable self-importance with a conclusion of pompous nonsense.

It may be meaningful to the challenged, to the educated....it's bollocks.
