The Nice Guys

The Nice Guys ★★★★★

Like Chinatown/The Last Boy Scout/Inherent Vice/any noir ever If those films were too frantic and drunkenly amused with themselves to fully be a moral critique of capitalism/a misanthropic lament to brutish masculinity/a melancholic contemplation of past relationships. Shane Black has now earned my "I would take a bullet for you in any limb or non-vital organ" level of devotion.
