    Was it the directing, or the editing?
    At the end of this movie, I was left baffled. The cast was stellar, and had great performances. The story had a lot of unexpressed potential... but the movie was excessively quirky and ultimately fell flat to me.

    So why was it?

    Was it the directing, that couldn't focus coherently on the plot, without adding useless and weird details?

    Or was it the not so great editing, that made some of the dialogues between the actors feel artificial?

    At the end, the movie just felt strange. It lacked direction, introduced too many weird and wannabe-funny characters in a plot that probably required a more serious and straightforward approach.

    Christian Bale an absolute master though, as usual.

    Terrible
    This movie is soooo slow and takes forever. The worst performance by Christian Bale I have seen. His character is a cross between Kramer (Seinfeld) & Nick Tortelli (Carla's husband from Cheers). After watching and leading up to the finally, the movie just would not end. Then it contains the diversity requirement by the white people falling in love with the black people and the white people with white people are bad people. The (in real life) rich Hollywood celebrities complaining about the rich is ironic. The comedy fails. Margot Robbie is as beautiful as ever and Robert DeNiro plays his usual one-dimensional character that fails to inspire. I wish I knew more about the actual events. I'm just glad I didn't pay to see this movie.
