To declare that Carol, an illustration of the impossible 1950s homosexual relationship between the elegant Cate Blanchett and the always poker-faced Rooney Mara, is one of mankind's most advanced treatment for insomnia, would be the understatement of the year. People can hail Blanchett's acting achievement, critics can go berserk how great the movie is, and you may feel differently about it - but watching it, I lost track how many times I looked at my watch.
