Evan “Kaizō Haya-shill” Pincus’s review published on Letterboxd:
The last dance. Unstoppable force meets immovable object on God’s chessboard- Los Angeles. Never understood this being knocked as unemotional - it’s a melodrama that plays out not at human scale but at the scale of the city itself, exploding the emotions these men don’t know how to express out onto the streets themselves. It’s a beautiful, tragic thing that nobody but Mann could’ve pulled off, engaging with the interiority of his usual “professional men” archetype to an even greater degree than ever before. It’s movie magic, y’all - even Moby comes out looking brilliant!
