    A flawless, subversive noir and a deeply nihilistic work told through the lens of Vietnam-Watergate era America.

    Walks a breathtaking tightrope of being almost too thematically on-the-nose ("one side is just losing slower than the other", "take a swing at me the way Sam Spade would") and almost too obtuse and distant without becoming either and, in fact, finding a perfect balance.

    Also, Hackman's hair and mustache are gold.

    Never has breaking all of the screenwriting rules about exposition and using too much voiceover felt so good! Every perceived flaw of this movie actually turns out to be a strength.
