    Felt longer than the first and that's not a good thing. Every film seems to go on for a crazy amount of time and despite occasionally having some really nice camera work, the stories just aren't that interesting to follow. The first shows promise, the second is odd and occasionally funny and the last just... Well, it has a dog.

    These are incredibly slow films that don't really seem to be about anything at all. Yes, they're about the economic…

    In the style of Matt, because why not. Saw this with my cinema card and also cos the poster looks damn cool. Look at it. Like some seventies sepia stuff and I'm always down for that. Opens on Gyllenhaal thin as hell. Hair slicked back like some creepy dude. No money but clearly owns a comb. Does bad shit with this grin. Freaked me out a bit but whatever, it's cool.
