venue35 saidKirsten Dunst got the top acting prize at Cannes for this. Isn't her performance good? I've read good reviews about this film was gonna see it but saw Drive instead. I've heard it's his most mainstream film.
There's nothing wrong with Dunst's performance. The film is ludicrous and doesn't make sense, and not in the good "this is so abstract is doesn't make sense" kind of way. But in the "I get this completely, but WHY were these choices made for the film!?" In some ways it reminds me of M. Knight Shyamalan's later films where everything was so face value it was insultingly stupid.
