I need to see it several more times.
Other than the "fact" that this is based on a novel (which I have yet to read, and now I really do want to read it) it feels more like someone had an incomplete plot for three or four films, but no beginning and no end. Then, because most popular writers tend to write in the same vein, or with similar structures, someone noticed that some of the characters were relatable to each other, from one story to the next, it was decided to make a single film, linking the story lines together. They built a wrap around, and then stitched it all together to make a loosely palatable story. This is what it "feels" like, but I need to see it several more times, seriously. Also, the first couple of times viewing it is very difficult to not play the game entitled: "Guess who is playing THIS character" which is fun, but distracting from a complex and wonderfully woven story.
