    Extremely high 3.5

    I will probably like this a lot more with time, but I already like it a lot. 

    This film brought me back to east end Toronto in the worst way, it’s amazing. Every dirtbag, every little shitty decision, a spattering of impulses and zero awareness. 

    When I was a kid my high school partners friends would go on about the guys they’re trying to shake who’s lives are a never ending series of mistakes. I feel like I’ve lived on the fringes of this film, it’s bizarre.

    ★★★½

    The accessible Mann. Perhaps less focused on the trappings of a Mann piece, it’s still a fun and stressful exploration of character through the frame of violence and craftsmen. 

    The whole shot on DV look is an amazing choice for a noir tale in LA. 

    Soundtrack is lacking a lot of the oomph that the more cult hit Mann works have, and overall the film is less focused which is surprising for such a tight premise. Nevertheless highly recommended.

    A vile and tedious film by a man with a paternity fetish and a hatred of women. I have yet to find a film by him that hasn't left me unsettled by his blatant misogyny. Half star for the early 2000s era toronto smog.

    Obscene 90s MTV music video flash and drama done to perfection. Visual Kei stage design and grandiose applied to a sickly faithful screenplay. Faggotry for the straights. 

    Essential viewing, influential across almost all media. Bring a large irony alcoholic drink, put on your favorite Bauhaus shirt and set the lights to red and other obnoxious things.
