    For me, what this adaptation does best, as does Murakami with his work, is the sutble interweaving of symbolisms and themes between the characters and story, my favourite among them being the interplay of silence, signing and sex. The mundane-surreal tone was well executed, the performances moving and genuine, and the car was pretty. Can't wait to watch this again, maybe after reading the original short story and, maybe if I'm feeling brave, some Chekhov.

    Anger Begets Anger.

    Martin McDonagh creates a dark, hilarious montage of scenes with an apparent fast-moving yet small story revolving around a few distinctive characters in smalltown midwest USA in the midst of an unsolved rape-murder.

    Very sceptical about so many factors beyond plot; the style of the set and speech, the purpose of retro-futurism; possible symbolism; the use of OTT violence; the melodramatic monologues... Do I like it because it's a contrived series of aspects of film that I do like mish-mashed together or is it genuinely good?

    There are definite good morals to the story, good closure and diverse performances from a few good leading and supporting roles.

    Because of the psychotherapeutic themes, I believe it's subjective as hell, therefore divisive if different minds care to look closer into this quirky tale.
