"A borderline incoherent shambles."


"Held together with spit and glitter glue and pipe-cleaners."


"That even after a reported 20 years in the making the film still feels fundamentally pointless isn’t just disappointing, it’s entirely bewildering."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"An ugly, unforgivably dull and self-serious mess."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"A ponderous slog."
