I didn't like the characters and it seemed to me that they went out of their way to make the worst possible choices in every situation. I dragged myself through 2/3rds of the film and I've never bothered to watch the rest. I don't know and don't care what happened to these bozos. I agree with the person who rated this alongside the awful and pretentious 'Memento'. There are too many mediocre films getting too much credit, and too many truly great films (like LIT) getting none.
I agree. I didn't like the characters at all. I thought the story was overcomplicated. All in all, I think it's over-rated.
I've only seen it once though, may give it a second watch sometime.
