By the Sea (2015) reportedly cost $10 mill. to produce, but only recouped $531.009 at the US box office. This was actually a respectable result for a limited art house release.

When you see a man or a woman giving a single star out of ten to a movie, stay away from his or hers (or maybe its, you never know - some reviews could be written by bots) reviews: they are the "talibans" of IMDb. They hate or love a movie and never appreciate it with their minds for the real value it may have or not in itself. And mostly, do not trust people who use words like "turgid" in their reviews - they are pedants.
