"Not exactly an ideal situation" - Anne Hathaway, discussing her film.
- 2020 Released: boxd.it/4zdAI
Well, at least I logged another Willem DaFoe film.
Does Netflix try to find shitty scripts? This opens with the cheesiest narration imaginable and gets no better after that. This film tries be a little bit film noir and that doesn't work. If you want to go noir, go noir, otherwise your characters all just feel like out of context weirdos speaking in an overly dramatic way for no real reason. The rest of the film goes straight spy thriller with limited character development so the movie is just a big tonal mess. Everyone is so basic in this and their acting is so understated that it kind of lulls you to sleep.
It's a movie... a boring movie... and that's about it.
