I'd been wanting to see Leviathan since Leeds Film Festival last year where it emerged as one of the most divisive films of the festival. I always think it's a good sign when a film can completely split an audience. Of course, that also means there's a risk that you'll end up hating the film and that's what happened here. It's not always the point to "enjoy" a film but I found nothing to like, appreciate, enjoy or interest me. The only saving grace was the shot of the gulls and even that is repeated too many times.
So not only a disappointment but also the reason why I've changed the explanation of my star ratings.
