    There is something clever about the conceit of this film, but for me the acting didn't really work. There was something broad and unrealistic about the characters that just kept me at an arm's length. While the story itself is dramatically compelling, the script and tone felt dated in a way I didn't like. That said, there are some cool things happening visually, and I could see how maybe people would have liked it at the time.

    I like road trip movies, and this delivers on some of the things I like about that formula, but it doesn’t feel like the characters are fully fleshed out. Also, it is one of those indie movies where not much actually happens.

    I was glad to see this on the big screen. It is a well-made film with mesmerizing story, excellent performances, from a director I love. Great that Scorsese is able to make an epic of this size and scope at this stage in his career, and I'm happy to have seen it.

    This was pretty great.  Would have preferred more resolution but I did appreciate the story we got, and loved the inventive visual design of it all.  I’m looking forward to part 3.
