I guess what I mean is that to have almost zero plot development in any given reel is fine, but only if the rest of the movie is exceptional in some way. The point of BSS is clearly not the story, so it sinks or swims on it's other aspects.
While very good technically, that wasn't enough for it to "work" for me and so the wafer thin story line is an obvious starting point for criticism, even though I agree there are great movies with equally thin plots.
It'll be interesting to see other comments on it here once a few more folk have seen it.
