    I basically feel the same way. When the group I was with was walking out of the theater we all uttered the same sentiment that the movie was very well done and Joaquin Phoenix is going to undoubtably win an Oscar for his performance. The move is also extremely disturbing.

    I just got home. I thought it was really good, not great, but really good with an excellent ending.

    My buddy kinda said the same. Said it just left you with a feeling, similar to episodes of Sons of Anarchy or Breaking Bad. Just a feeling of almost stress because of how messed up what you just watched was. I will watch it at some point but not sure it'll be in theater.

    Definitely worth seeing in the theater. I don't think I would have reacted the same just watching at home.

    First half or 2/3 was just totally depressing, to the point of being uncomfortable.

    The last part of the movie was pretty crazy and disturbing as has been mentioned already.

    Phoenix was excellent and should get consideration for an Oscar.

    Even though the film was really really good I didn't walk out of the theater thinking I can't wait to see it again.
