A vile, reprehensible film.
This is a movie I couldn't even bear to sit through. It's one of (if not the
) most insensitive, insulting, and disrespectful movies I've ever seen. I won't bother summarizing the numerous plot holes, the god-awful acting, or the fact that the movie expects us to sympathize with a sociopath and a criminal. I'll just get to the movie's overall message.
"Suicide can be a good thing.
No. No. NO.
Where do I start with what's wrong with that? It's a slap in the face to everyone who's ever lost someone to suicide, to anyone who's ever recovered from a suicide attempt, to anyone who's ever even contemplated suicide - a group that I am among. It's blatant Oscar Bait
, trying to ride on misplaced sympathies. It's sickening and repulsive, and everyone involved with it should be ashamed. If you like this movie, you are wrong to do so
