I won't even pretend I didn't love every inch of this sugary true sports story. Josh Lucas, Derek Luke and the whole young cast felt fresh and genuine.
"Bitch...you don't have a future"
The late Carradine gives a career best performance as Bill. Uma and Hannah's fight in Budd's trailer is violence perfection. Final confrontation between Bill and Beatrix is another violent delight. Malagueña Salerosa by Chingón is fuckin great at the end.
Sinister, dark, brutal, I fucking loved it. Alex Essoe gives a brilliant, punishing, literally, performance. Pat Healy plays another sleaze with Burt Reynolds stache and everything. The girl that played Britanny Murphy on that horrible Lifetime movie is here too. The two directors here directed the shit out of their own Hollywood story. They have vision, style and balls. The score is great also. Reminded me a bit of Mulholland Dr. Thanks Matt for the factoid.
The most ambitious film the Spierig brothers have done. And their best. They reteam with Ethan Hawke for this trippy, time travel adventure. Forget explaining anything about it. The joy is just to watch it unfold, expertly under the direction of the Spierig brothers. I wonder how they'll top this one. It's gonna be great. By the way, Sarah Snook gives one of the best performances I've seen this year in a brave, complicated and very moving acting job.
