That's not a flaw in directing... that's a flaw in writing/dialogue.
Again, the scenes are relatively well acted considering the given dialogue/story which leads to conclusion that it was well directed.
I have the feeling that 90% of people can't differ the bad writing/dialogue from bad directing. If dialogue and story points are not good no director can make it work well. If you are to evaluate directing then you have to evaluate output (acting) COMPARED TO the input (story, dialogue).
