Twitter Capsule: For all it seems to hammer home themes, the mood and the argument of the film are increasingly hard to pin down.

Second Capsule: Typifies the kind of movie that gives you lots to talk about but not much to say. Or vice versa. Or something.

VOR:   Feels like a "between-projects" project, albeit keyed to that theme. Flashes of insight but also of panic. Last act scuttles most of what's interesting in the prior ones.
