Because it's not a book, it's a film.

One element of film's specificity is that it is a medium that plays in time. The way the events in the film are structured and distributed in time is fundamental for how the film plays as a whole in the end.

In a way, it can be compared to telling a joke: there is no scientific rule for it, but everyone feels that if you take an hour to get to the punchline of a joke that can be told in a minute, the audience will have wandered off.

So yes, in the end it's entirely subjective, but I think most people who have seen their share of films or have studied it will agree with me.

I'm not saying it has to be rushed, it just should be more condensed than it is now.
