Anyhow, my point is, different types of movies (like different types of cars) serve different functions. In B89's case, plotting takes a backseat to the other visual, thematic, and character-driven aspects of the film. Sometimes, to really explore and fully flesh out those alternative aspects of a film, plotting HAS to take a backseat as to not distract the viewer from or overpower the rest of the film.
Well, we all live in our own reality. When I look at the movie I see something that lacks nuts and bolts, is close to falling apart. And I certainly do not see the great "character-driven aspects" and themes. The best thing are the visuals and the music.
