Trying to fit these disparate pieces together, however, is laborious at best and tortuous at worst.

There are a lot of things to complain about this movie, but this is not one of them.  It is trivially easy to connect all the stories.  They are not connected by plot.  They are connected thematically.  This is not a plot driven film.  

Which is exactly why the film has this love-it-or-hate-it fan base. In the case of books, eschewing plot and focusing on character and themes gets a book labeled as "literary".

Except it's NOT connected thematically as you stated...at least not in terms of a consistent them...if, as in chapters 1 and 5 the film had dealt with a theme of slavery I might agree with you

 I don't think this is the better one as I totally disappointed...
