Cool heist movie; the one part where they heist super hard is pretty great. The rest is kinda whatever milquetoast moralizing.
Travis Bickle did the whole "toxic masculinity anti-hero you aren't supposed to emulate" schtick well before Tyler Durden or Walter White, and he did it best. And he's not just morally-gray in characterization, but the narrative directly shows how thin the line is between hero and villain. The same egoism motivates both personas, and the movie's ending is all the more haunting for it.
So good at emulating the fuzzy 4:3 television style that I grossly underestimated the amount of footage taken directly from the '80's. The fact that there's a compelling narrative seamlessly interspersed with the real history is even better. The nuanced portrayal of politics as aesthetics and the horrific reality that public policy will never be as sexy as a coke ad make it one of the most important films of the 2010's.
