    I returned from a multi week road trip this weekend, which was a blast but also exhausting and didn't leave too much time for keeping up here, so this is my first review in a while. And it's a hell of a movie to have to review.

Rare is it to say that a movie needed to be longer, but this might just be one of those movies. A lot of things get set up that never reach a satisfying conclusion. They clearly…
