I Care a Lot ★★★

What I think about when I think about this film is Marla's hair.

The first time we see Marla on screen, we see her hair -- a horizontal, one length bob haircut. If you know anything about hair, it is one of the most technically difficult classic haircuts to master. It represents everything you are about to find out about her character -- strategic, meticulous, uncompromising.

Everyone in this film is terrible. Even Peter Dinklage towards the end, showed no sign of empathy for the fate of those like his mother. Like the hair, the system is seemingly immaculate but what lies behind the true nature of the justice system is far more complex and confounding.
