    More like Here Are the White Trash. I don't know what made this great cast join this movie that seems to have been written (and directed) by a 12-year-old.

    ★★★★½

    Yeah, four and a half stars. Does it deserve it? Probably not. But it's 2020, everything is shit and this is probably the closest I'll ever get to see Jack O'Connell and Charlie Hunnam make out. Incredible performances, beautiful cinematography.
