Lumbering nonsense seemingly built on the notion that a belief in the ineffectuality of the police will render you with a single digit IQ.
Changes tack several times due to what the director seems to think are twists but he's deluding himself, it's just meandering shit.

A wonderful portrait of creeping madness, chock full of Lynch hallmarks (coffee, idiosyncratic cops, Grace Zabriskie's face giving the impression it's going to jump off her head and attack) all nestled neatly in a blistering cascade of Herzog lunacy.

Slow to the point of tedium. Then, just at the point when the film managed to construct a coherent justification as to why this should be, it blows itself apart with a climax of bizarre stupidity so intense an intelligence vacuum formed in my brain large enough to make me think my skull might cave in.

It would appear that the best way to break a film watching hiatus is with a metaphysical viking movie.
The cinematography mimics a graphic novel, the tone is closer to that of space exploration and the whole thing is soundtracked by droning, doomy, post rock. All of which calls for cries of pretension, but then one man's pretension is another man's genius.
I'm the other man, this is fucking ace.
