This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, it is far from being good. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

Nice imagery. Reminded me of Memento, the way it goes back and forth in time.

As an earlier viewer noted, the film has a narrative that is non-linear much of the time, forcing its audience to figure out the order of events from a dizzying series of out-of-sequence scenes. The fact that its protagonist displaces his unexpressed grief into boorish behaviour (making him often unlikeable) does not help. Perhaps the director realized he had a fairly mundane story with an unsympathetic central character and decided to assemble it achronologically to try to inject a sense of pace. I did like Louie the Lobster though.

During the first half of the movie, the director cuts back anfd forth between the past and present in no real discerable pattern and far too quickly making the film very confusing. Then, for the second half of the movie this cutting back and forth continues but with more time between cuts making the film a bit more understandable but still confusing since it is difficult to piece the story together. I'm still not quite sure where certain pieces of the story fit in the film.

The out-of-order sequencing of this film makes it confusing.
