Twitter Capsule: Both nonsensical and crushingly obvious in sense. Points for brio but internal logic flouted all over. Visually uneven.

VOR:   Blunt notion of Haves and Have Nots: no originality points there. But has courage of conviction, pursuing outré concept and furious message with equal vehemence. Something to behold.
