    Kevin Smith does not make movies for everyone, so naturally, this movie will be divisive, as all the View Askewniverse entries have been. Watching this film is, in a sense, like watching Endgame, or more appropriately the Arrowverse's Crisis on Infinite Earths.

I will say right off the bat that this film will be divisive, and I understand why. I see this more-so joining the ranks of a Sound Of My Voice/Martha Marcy May Marlene as an oft-misjudged work than a Spring Breakers/Under The Skin love it or hate it experiment.…
