Me, I quite liked it. Though, I just happened to be in the right mood for something so...'excessive'. Maybe not the right word to describe it - absurd might be closer to the mark. A bit long, would be one of my only criticisms.
My viewing was interrupted, so watched it in two sittings - not ideal, and I actually fancy a rewatch.
As I haven't read the novel on which it's based, I can treat the film as a stand-alone achievement rather than an adaptation. I think of seen it twice and both times found to be superbly constructed with brilliant performances and is riveting to watch. It's been a long time since I've seen it, so it's overdue a rewatch.
