This movie made as much sense to me as the notes taken by Doc.
What I mean is that all the way through, I had no idea of what was really going on. It is a beautiful movie, and acting for the most part was impressive. Not the least by Joaquin Phoenix. But the level of information that you have to sift through is enormous and the environment you are working on is all fogged up with smoke.

I liked the look and feel of the movie, but if I am so much behind the plotline that nothing makes sense, I start to lose interest. I might not be the best scholar within the fine arts of cinematography, so most likely there is something to this movie that I have missed. If you have time to kill, and feel like a PI movie with a beautiful trip back to the 70s, there might be something in there for you.
