    Part of the greatness of this film is that it not only avoids any simple answers, but it also takes us into the awkward contradictions and internal dishonesties that help us look at the mirror each day.

    Sometimes a sentence would require time to process an answer but the answer followed faster than the previous one ended.
    If a movie like this is nothing but talk (which I don't mind) it should be done masterfully. This movie is not...
