    ★★★

    I love Soderbergh *and* the taking down, however temporary, of shady elites, but this didn't quite land. Netflix has plenty of series that would be better served as self-contained movies -- this is a movie that could have benefited from the mini-series treatment, or at least a little more focus.

    Bonus points for Gary Oldman's committedly weird performance (enhanced by the fact I just watched Rosencrantz & Guildenstern again). Double bonus points for featuring my island in a brief cameo as Nevis.

    What a visceral, immersive, assaultive* experience. No backstory, no hand-holding, no assurances that our sympathies are on the side of a righteous cause -- just the immediacy of war and hormones and unforgiving nature. See it big if you can.

    (*In the best way possible, and largely thanks to Mica Levi's amazing score.)

    This is the film Corben was born to make. Just 100% Florida hustlers from A-Rod on down. An absolute riot.
