See it if You're willing to look beyond the surface to the underlying subtlety and allegory. It's here, but won't be shoved down your throat.
Don't see it if You cannot (or will not) appreciate nuance; you fail to find value where it hasn't been spoon-fed to you.
See it if Want to support a solo artist's attempt to freestyle a memoir of his life in a rambling, unfocused monologue.
