Well, it's a film, and it's Serbian. And honestly, I was pretty bored by it. Yes, it's brutal, but that's really the only thing it had going for it. I get what the satire was going for, specifically mocking the film industries in smaller countries that chase "respectability" in a manner that usually involves playing to foreign stereotypes of the country (in this case, a Serbian film industry that's obsessed with the Yugoslav wars and the suffering they left behind), but if they wanted to really dive in on it, they should've made the evil director into the main viewpoint character. By having it be the "star" of his movie instead, it felt like the film put me on the outside looking in, rather than actually involving me in all its nightmarish moments. Ultimately, it just felt pretentious.

My full review is here.

It is and it sounds it. Not shocked to see Kevin dragging it; seemed try-hard and unappealing

We have a payload to deliver to the heart of our nearest star. We are delivering that payload cause that star is dying and, if it dies, we die, everything dies. So that is our mission, there is nothing, literally nothing, more important than completing our mission. End of story.
