This is not for wimps.” Others were franker: “I left loving the movie but feeling sick”; “My eyes cannot take everything in, it’s dizzying. Now I have a migraine.” Critics have chimed in with agreement. Devin Faraci testified to crossed eyes, while Peter Sciretta said the effect was “jarring”. The Guardian
