User Review

A Huge Waste of Talented People

Rating: 3/10

`Full Frontal' is maybe my greatest deception this year. Directed by
Steven
Soderbergh and having such a cast, I would not believe that the film could
be such a crap. There are lots of characters, but none of them is well
developed. Therefore, the viewer sees many famous actors and actresses on
the screen and is not able to understand who they are, what are their
motives, where they are. The plot is very confused, and some actors and
actresses perform more than one role. The image and photography are
horrible, using a kind of fake Dogma '95 style. I do not know how such
talented people could be part of such a mess: friendship or big money?
Anyway, a huge waste of talented people and of my time and money, in a
film
that never works. My vote is three.
