I thought it was excellent. After being a fan of the original since it first showed in theaters, I expected not to like it. I was pleasantly surprised. The very thing one person didn't like about it, was part of what made it work for me. If it had been shorter, it probably wouldn't have worked. It was very subtle, and required the viewer to pay attention and think. This will doom it with most audiences. In fact, the people next to us (who curiously, were complaining about everything because it offended their sensibilities based on loyalty to orange haired entities) left after an hour. Anyway, I am a big fan of Kurosawa, Aronofsky and Tarkovsky, so slow pacing is something I enjoy. This is a movie for fans of the original, sci-fi fans and fans of foreign and art films. If you're a thinker, you'll be connecting dots, and asking questions. The movie contains the question at the heart of the original, and of Philip K. Dick in general. Namely, what is real? But not in a superficial, pseudo-intellectual way, but in a deeper more meaningful sense. It's heartening to see a movie like this can still be done, and shown in theaters, in an age of cheap, pandering, lowest common denominator entertainment.
