The only reason people are calling this over-rated is because it's been given a label that is impossible to live up to, built on the assumption that any movie could possibly be the be-all, end-all, greatest of all time. Yes, it’s good, very good. 5/5, 10/10, whatever, but is it the greatest film of all time? No, because nothing ever will be.
