Film #44 of my 2020 - Clearing Out My DVD Case Initiative.
Wonderful performances by both Michael Shannon and Shea Whigham could not save this glacier-ly paced and utterly boring film.
Whigham plays the anti-hero of the piece, a man on the run from the law who stumbles into a false identity in a sleepy west Texas town. Shannon plays the sheriff of the town who is trying to solve a mysterious murder, a theft and the secrets that Whigham is hiding.
Catalina Sandino Moreno plays a love interest that has got to be one of the worst written and useless roles that I have seen in a long, long while. Her talents as an actress are completely and utterly wasted in this terrible underwritten part.
But ultimately, this movie suffers from such awful and painfully slow pacing that it makes the film almost completely unwatchable. It was an absolute chore trying to finish this.
