"Iraq is dope."
It's certainly rough around the edges and there isn't a whole lot to this "rise and fall" story that you haven't seen before, but I'm really tempted to rate this higher because of how much I loved watching this. While the story is a bit familiar, Phillips comes at this with so much energy and style that it's nearly impossible not to appreciate. Genuinely fascinating and damn' well directed, kind of perfectly balancing it's drama and comedy. So comfortable in its own skin and genuinely tense at times. One of the biggest surprises of 2k16.
Jonah Hill's laugh. ahhhahhhhahhhhhh.
