CONFUSING - right from the beginning
Confusing, muddled, and strange. I'm not sure we were watching a movie about the start of a Scientology like cult, the power hungry cult leader who can capture his followers with some sly logic mixed with his chrisma or the metally deranged mind of a young man who desparately wants to belong.
The audience all let out a collective groan at the end when the lights came up and the credits began to roll. Not because they wanted it to continue, but because they were thrilled it was over. Some audience member were blaming there partner for recommending the film and other were heard suggesting that "you owe me" after enduring this one.
Yes the actors are good, but the story leads nowhere, the characters don't change or evolve and the ability to know when it's a dream, delusion, or reality escaped me.
