    I'm sure I'll have more thoughts to put down later, but for now all I want to say that a friend and I saw it in an otherwise empty theatre, which was a blessing for the five straight minutes we were laughing like dying hyenas.

    At the beginning the hall of mirrors was branded with a Native American man, but later he'd been replaced by a white guy. And with that, I thought I had the movie figured out.
    I had part of it.
    Not as thematically tight as Get Out, but this thing is dripping with ideas and ambition. Catnip for me. Do I know what the Big Message was? No. But searching something as big as this for just one thesis statement seems reductive as hell.

    Also, Tim Heidecker started out doing Tim Heidecker in movies, but then he ended up doing Tim Heidecker from his television shows.

    It's weird to try to use words to describe this movie, when it's all about color and texture and how Colin and Jamie share the frame. Thing is a weird sort of gorgeous, with an almost incomprehensible plot, just weariness and the brief respites you can find from it. Love is dangerous in Mann's films, but also vital. But in the end, you gotta go back to work.

    I've seen this movie too many times to have anything to say about it. I don't think it's top-tier Scorsese but there's a breeziness to it that makes it easier to watch than a Silence or a Taxi Driver. Also, the jokes are good.
