What does it suggest when something insists upon itself?

I've heard this term used lots times but am not sure as to what it means. What does it mean when something "insists upon itself"?

For example: "I do not similar to that movie because it insists upon itself".


Answers:    It means that the movie moves around the same impression (plot, message, purpose, etc.) that is, that whatever is the point of the movie it is repeated and repeated and repeated, so much so that the outsider can feel tired and uninterested
Insist upon itself is pretty an unusual term. What it means is that it is trying to build support for itself... Sort of a self promotion. It could be a situation where on earth one person may be arguing in support of himself as an individual such as within an election campaign when a contestant insists on himself as the right choice.
