As a work of art the movie gets a 10, as a movie a 4. That makes an average of a 7. However, I give it a bonus point because of its influence on cinema from a conceptual standpoint and a technical standpoint.
UPDATE: After watching it two more times I can’t help it, but increase the score to a 9. This movie fascinates me in a weird way. It’s science-fiction in its most extreme form and just a true work of cinematic art.
