This movie failed miserably at holding my attention. I have no idea what was going on and I really don't care to find out. Did anyone else notice how often they focus on the mouth? I believe I only noticed because it grossed me out. But every time someone is eating, drinking, smoking etc. all focus is on the mouth and the sounds it makes. Why? I don't get it. But I do know that it was distracting and disgusting.

Seeing Daniel Craig before his James Bond days is interesting because one gets to see more of his sensitive side. That said, I did not like this movie at all; it was too pretentious, too mixed up in its metaphors, to the point where it leaves its audiences behind. It's hard to care when one does not know what is going on. I get that this is supposed to be an artistic film and that the filmmakers are merely trying to tell a story that had already happened. But there's a way to circumvent cliches and keep the audiences engaged. Perhaps this film will appeal more to artists because they are more knowledgeable regarding Francis Bacon's life. But for the rest of us who are not art buffs, the filmmakers do not give us a chance to belong in that particular artistic sphere, not even for a second....
