Anyone?
I am hoping it's as good as the (rather pretentious and meandering) reviews from the LA Times and USA Today have made it sound. I'd rather rely on discussions on our threads than on their 'professionals', though.

Ebert hasn't technically reviewed it, but he did put some perspective on it, when blurbing about the Chgo Film Festival last year.

It's not often that I come to FilmWise specifically to warn others to avoid a movie, but here we are. This movie has zero redeeming qualities and will have you angry that wasted your time and energy on it 5 minutes in.
I was excited to see this from the first trailer I saw about it. I really thought I was going to see some interesting stuff about one of my favorite film makers and gain further appreciation of the movie. Nope, not what was here at all. I swear to God you could pick any 5 random FilmWisers and have them sit around and talk about the movie for an hour and come up with more insight than this. It is the theatrical version of someone ranting about chemtrails on a conspiracy website.

There is only one thing that comes to mind after seeing this movie.... Mr. Ascher, what you have just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Yup, Netflix on Demand. Knock yourself out. I will amend the above to share the 1 bit of insight I never noticed while watching the movie.
Spoiler
While Danny is riding his big wheel it is all one long shot....but he changes floors just by turning down hallways, I never really noticed that before.
