I don't know why. But I had a really hard time focusing while watching this movie, so I'm not sure that I'm giving it a fair score. The production design is really good though. Everything looks amazing! And Timothy Spall is not really my favorite. I can't really relate to him or his character.

I can't really give you guys anything else. I can hardly remember the story. I don't know if it's my fault or if it's actually the storytelling that just did not sit right with me, but I'll definitely give it another shot in the future!

 

Ida röd 3.0 

This film was painfully boring to see. It has the world's most ugly cry in it and I don't even know what to say about the sex/rape scene, it's not horrifying, it's nothing.

Sure it must have been hard to try to portraying a guy when all the information on him is different, but I have a really hard time to connect with Turner, he's just a really strange man and I kind of wished that we would have seen more of him working rather than his strange family life.

It's such a loooong film without any interesting events and what happens doesn't get explained.
