As an earlier viewer noted, the film has a narrative that is non-linear much of the time, forcing its audience to figure out the order of events from a dizzying series of out-of-sequence scenes. The fact that its protagonist displaces his unexpressed grief into boorish behaviour (making him often unlikeable) does not help. Perhaps the director realized he had a fairly mundane story with an unsympathetic central character and decided to assemble it achronologically to try to inject a sense of pace. I did like Louie the Lobster though.
