Love watching and making these things!
Funny ass lil flick that had some great memorable scenes and good sopranos DNA all over it! Honestly the type of people who don’t like this are the type of people who were angry at how Sopranos ended… no one in my theater laughed which makes me realize that audiences are sooo freaking lost about how to enjoy movies…idek… the first 15-20 mins are a lil cringe — couple of bad acting scenes, the Chrissy VO feels a little shoddily written —but basically after that it’s really good. Oh yeah Ray Liotta is great in this — as is the main guy lol
Visionary and cool — nearly soviet in its interests and roving inner monologue. Obviously the least interesting stuff is the procedural elements, simply because they’ve been so overdone since then, but must acknowledge their innovative nature. The wry humor and beautiful black and white framing make it a big winner!
Had to watch it again for the zillionth time and it’s actually still pretty good lmfao
Imagine the rating you, the presumably free-spirited filmlover, would give this if there was an A24 logo at the top... All these 2.5-3.5 star ratings WITH A HEART would become 4-4.5 stars with a heart. “I loved this...it was so dumb” or “I loved this, but I could see why people would hate it” would just be “I loved this!” without the imagined fear…
My problem with all these Netflix docuseries - besides the fact that they could cut all the repetitive filler out and become exciting 2 hour long movies - is that everyone watches them for the zany “can you believe what they just did/said” characters and then 75% of the way thru they’re like “oh and btw everyone was always on meth. Moving right along...” NO! Obvi we knew the whole time every “kooky” decision was made while fucked up on…
