Jason Haggstrom’s review published on Letterboxd:
Really not sure about this film. It has a lot of odd moments and laughs, but they don't really seem to stick together. I wasn't even sure who the lead character was for the first half because Josh Brolin's character never really seizes the narrative. It almost seems like the Coens really wanted to write a love letter to the old Hollywood studio system and several aspects of it (Busby Berkely again!). Beyond that, I'm not entirely sure what was going on in this. Will watch it again to see if it makes more sense.
