Maybe you should watch it with subtitles, so it doesn't feel so... foreign... to you, if that's the problem.

And try not to boor us with a film vs. movie tirade.
Does is say somewhere that this is the Art House Film Forum?

The thing about being a snob here is that Film as Art is Art for the middle-lower class.
I can put my Literature and Art hat on and note that film is considered the lowest cheapest in the arts. Serious actors merely use film as a stepping stool to buy a home in Monaco.
The best snobbiest elite film ranks no higher than a middle of the road play.
For every snob, there is a higher level snob out there to out snob you.
Like when some idiot buys a Mercedes - I say what you could not afford a quality car? See they can spend $250,000 on a car - but that is still a complete low rent pile of shit compared to REAL cars that are 20 times that!
You bought a top of the line Rolex - what you could not get a REAL watch. Patek Philipe at least $2million US for 1 watch. If you don't spend at least $2million on a watch - you're just a wannabe yuppie.
Film? Piffle - film is low rent art. Glorified photography, which, itself is second rate art.
And any viewer who does not hold at least an Arts degree in Literature has no real understanding of why Film is considered the Oompa Loompa of ART. Take a four-year degree in Literature and only then will you have the brains enough to understand why all film is DRIVEL.
I only waste my time watching any movie/film/TV to see what the paeons of society are watching so that I will understand their low-brow-middling mindsets.
So there. Snob level 1 beaten by snob level 2.
Snob level 3 is anyone who spends time on a forum to discuss movies - what losers spending time on such dross. Blackguards the lot.
They could become a dietary staple for me!
and it's hard to tell the difference. Not bad but not once a week, either.
. . . is that it's made from soy protein, so, eventually, it can make you into a soy-boy beta male. I feel that I'm safer with the "Beyond Burger" type products, which are made from pea protein. However, now that I think of it, one of the central themes of Georg Buchner's "Woyzeck" is that Woyzeck's/Wozzeck's doctor requires him to eat peas all the time (in a kind of bizarre medical experiment featuring a pea diet) - and Woyzeck is a big beta male too! (This was of course before Alban Berg got hold of the story for his atonal operatic version, "Wozzeck".) Maybe I just don't know what to think. ;-)
what's stopping you?
... OK ... yeah, you go ahead of me and I'll check your review
From USA Today, January 4 (and, yes, I do acknowledge that USA Today is a not-always-trustworthy corporate news source!):McDonald's also announced in December it had developed the McPlant, a new plant-based platform, and said tests of the plant-based burger are expected in some markets around the world this year.
