Every year the Oscars put up a movie that has hidden deep meanings that all the intellects claim have a bigger message than what is really there.

So I guess if I say it was BOOOORING and slow, it's because I am not smart enough to really know what was happening.

Guess I be slow then.

Here's a review from IMDB:

He just told you the whole film. Yes, it was very realistic. Watching white trash scrape through life. How that is "brilliant", I dont know.
I mentioned this film a few days ago. I loved it. I like movies that move slow - gives you time to think about stuff related to what's going on. I liked the tension - that something horrible was about to happen at any moment - and the acting. It's one of those ultra-realistic flicks without a big arc.

Brilliant's in the shots, the direction, the acting.
