Insipid, Excruciating, Disappointing

See it if A film of a performance thrills you. If your not particular about what you see.

Don't see it if Lacking story, direction and of being in depth of anything. Needs to be more creative.

Disappointing, Thought-provoking, Indulgent, Banal, Cliched

See it if You enjoy seeing filmed performances in theater.

Don't see it if Not really a performance. A film of a performance. And the point seemed to be, “work sucks.” Not exactly revelatory.
