Default Movies you think are objectively great, but you really don't like?

Ingmar Bergman's Persona comes to mind. No doubt that it's well shot, acted, thought out, and effective, but it all comes down to a person experiencing someone manipulate her by not speaking-with the occasionally trippy sequence or snuff imagery to mix it all up.

I wouldn't accuse it of being shallow or unimportant, but I would say its status as a "great movie" overshadows its viewing experience, if that makes any sense.

It's depressing, but it lacks an emotional catharsis. So it feels like looking out the window during a rainy day. Just kind of dull and mysteriously bleak-rather than having satisfying character motivations.

Maybe I should have posted to the UnpopularOpinion thread, but I think this could deserve its own thread.
