    ★★★

    For most of it, I was convinced I was watching one of those “great” comedies we rarely see anymore. Every time I was ready to cringe or expecting the whole thing to fold in on itself, the jokes would somehow keep landing. By the time the opening was over, I was sold. Sadly, despite pulling off some key moments throughout, it definitely does dip in quality in its last twenty minutes or so.

    Worth a watch. Would've been fun with a crowd.

    ★★★

    Cajun horror. Some of it’s very silly, but the imagery can be quite haunting at times. Dug the score and Mickey Rourke’s performance.

    Forget "The Dark Knight". Forget "The Dark Knight Rises". Forget even "Inception". This film matches the levels of greatness that "Memento", my favorite Nolan film, manages to reach, and it does it without telling the story backwards. This is dark, mysterious, captivating, intelligent, and is easily one of Nolan's most under rated films so far.
