Good cast and script, but ultimately done in by Arnofsky's intrusive cinematic tricks (actor-mounted cameras; split screens) and by the sense of rigged doom that permeates the whole thing.

Masterfully shot and edited, but I wouldn't call it a "great". In order to be great, I have to want to see it again, despite the content. I have no desire to watch RfaD again.

The whole film is emotional and powerful. I don't know why some people don't like it but in my opinion it's fantastic.

I think the reason that some people don't like this film is that it is emotional and powerful.

First time I watched it, I was shaking at the end.

I get it... movies shouldn't be so physical. So stressful. That's what made it for me though. Wow!

A fantastic soundtrack is perfect throughout this intensely emotional film
