I really hope at some point we can get past the "hey remember this from the 80's?" phase of Hollywood movies.
This "film" answers the question "what kind of movie would you get if David Lynch fell down the stairs, got a brain injury and tried to direct Buckaroo Banzai from memory?"
*EDIT (5-14-2021) I just got notified that this film is getting a 4K scan and is releasing on Blu-ray at the end of June 2021 from Culture Shock Releasing. I guess I have to buy it now and revisit it.
Neo-noir in the capable hands of a Master. It hits all the classic beats of a crime film but also seems refreshing and dangerous. Wonderful soundtrack, great sound design and a deliberately paced atmosphere that seems like the greatest hits from a season of an HBO original series. Probably one of the best genre filmmakers we have today. I will watch anything S Craig makes from now on as soon as it comes out.
