    The Art of Self-Defense

    ★★★½

    This movie was pretty solid, but overall maybe not my thing. I thought the film was pretty smart with how it was discussing toxic masculinity, although very in your face (most of the time for comedic effect), it was showing the multiple layers to that idea.

No matter what the two bros do to try and escape, they always fall back into their theiving roots and always end up running from the consequences. Their style is outdated, it's no longer the land of the cowboy, but the daring duo refuses to believe that. despite how many shootouts they get themselves into. Butch even kills for the first…
