    I can, and many people already have, fault Vincent Gallo for a number of shitty things that this movie holds. Gallo is a loud-mouth bastard, he's abrasive, and he writes horrifically shitty people that do mean, cruel things to each other for no good reason.

    And then there's Christina Ricci.

    I don't know how much, if any, of Layla's angelicness can be credited to Gallo (apart from the way she almost glows on the print). So I'll give all my…

    I haven’t burst into tears when a film cut to credits like that in ages. I adored this, kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat until the last minute. Pretty sure it’s a 5-star but holding that off until my second (imminent) watch, and a few more in-depth discussions with friends.
    I’d be pleased as punch if this sets the tone for the next decade of filmmaking endeavors.
