Kind of interesting meta aspects.
The core plot mechanics are implausible. Some good dramatic unfolding though.
Melodramatic and improbable. Very short. Over done.

The sound of one hand clapping. If you enjoy watching inarticulate characters smoke cigarettes and mumble, Stephens is for you.
No shortage of melodrama. The constant VO narration tells more than shows. There are some interesting personal speeches. Plenty of fantasy “billionaires and castles” stuff.
Solid. Nice use of verse.
Very funny stuff.
A fairly histrionic melodrama.
