Leave the World Behind (2023) - 6/10

Everyone of a certain vintage remembers the TV show Lost. It was brilliant. For a while, at least. If you've never seen it - surely fucking not, but let's pretend - it's about a bunch of people who end up on a desert island after a plane crash and all this mad shit starts happening. And the best bit of it is the anticipation about what's going to happen next and, importantly, why all this mad shit is happening. It's the why that keeps you interested. Why the black smoke? Why the polar bear? Why the button? And yet, they drag the why out. They get their monies worth out of the why and then they wring it for more value. Which, ultimately - like a Ugandan dollar - diminishes the value of the why eventually. Diminishes it to the point of valuelessness. We all lost interest in the why eventually because most of the mad shit was never explained. But why am I talking about Lost, you may ask? Because this is a feauture length version of Lost. Plenty of why and very few answers. We all need some why or what's the point? I enjoyed it, for the most part, and was very into the why, but the ending is a kidney blow as you're looking over your shoulder for the why.
