I agree CK is kindof a bloated mess. Focuses too narrowly on the bad relationship with the drunk mistress- and in doing so, amounts to a really cheap shot at Hearst, instead of being thoughtful, it just seems like arty bile.

But it still seamlessly utilized more technique than anyone had ever done, so it's a watermark for style, if not storytelling.
