OK I made it to the end. I found it mostly enjoyable after the first 30 minutes. But having 1/3 of the film spent with characters that aggressively annoying is a pretty long slog. I was entertained, but the sexual menace of it means this isn't going to be a yearly watch fo rme.

I liked the concept of this, but I wish they had tossed the single-shot conceit earlier and just made the rest of it using standard cinematic narrative form. The fact that it stays with that one shot for something like 35 minutes and then just turns into a normal movie was kind of a disappointment. Felt like it would have been better to rip that band-aid off early and get on with the business of telling the rest of the story.
