I thought the TLJ character didn't add as much as what I presume was intended and what was the car accident scene all about? I know the ambiguities in the narrative are there for effect, but I think this device was overplayed.

So, good movie but why do some consider it great?
Would have been better if Bardem died a slow and painful death.
