Good stuff - a slow-moving drama, primarily a character piece about the two in the title. I'll admit I spent a whole lot of time wondering wtf was going on between them, but that wasn't a problem.
Suitably random Nick Cave cameo, heh.
Other reviews on here: "who wants to see Keanu Reeves back on form, being super bad ass and shooting lots of dudes in the face?"
Turns out the answer is "not me".
Maybe I'm in the wrong mood and we're supposed to just be laughing away and wooping it up from start to finish (because the premise does read as pretty funny / silly), but I just found the thing largely nasty and sad.
One of those highly-rated movies that is just bloody awesome (mate). On a big screen anyway... nothing happens in a rush, the cinematography's great (so much interplay between massive shots and claustrophobic close-ups), the soundtrack is Morricone's best, the story's good enough, the dialogue's fun, all the main characters are interesting... Absolutely top notch.
