    A sad, aimless, farcical fate for Wanda in a sad and farcical tale that hits its target - the central plot line still feels like a long tangent in the greater narrative project of Wanda as a protagonist in a picaresque - something which resumes the last 10 minutes of the film and I think ultimately could have been a more fulfilling masterpiece. As is, this is still wonderful.

Action scenes edited more like their contemporaries which means fast cuts and very little choreography/blocking. Just a tedious slog. Only decent performance was from Russell Crowe. How do you cast Keith David and underutilize him? Clearly Shane Black thought he was making his Chinatown (a movie about 70s LA conspiracy made in 2016) but can you imagine anything more stale than a porn cover up plot in a period noir piece? Give me a break! There were a few funny lines - that's it.
