Yeah- it's one thing to say, "I didn't understand or get the plot." I'd guess there has been as much if not more written and discussed about the plot of this movie than any other movie.
As for it being 'slow', to draw a musical analogy, there's probably a reason why most (popular) songs today aren't much longer than 4 minutes. To put it another way it would be like saying, "Watching this sunset is taking too long." Of course others might replace "sunset" with "paint drying" or "lawn growing."
