ellis’s review published on Letterboxd:
I wish this had more a strong consistent tone, a less convoluted plot and went full pelt with its ideas because this movie is full of good ideas.
The idea of adding moral greyness to a racist cop is a great idea but the movie just half bakes this idea to the point where it feels as if Sam Rockwell’s character is being redeemed. I even love certain scenes in this movie but it never comes full circle to work as a 2 hour piece.
Frances and Sam do deserve Oscar praise for this though, their performances keep this thing from being bad.
