    Works better as commentary than comedy.

    I’m at odds with the Safdie’s Neo-realism sleaze (which honestly ranks alongside the greatness of Clark and Korine) being applied to what could be considered a white knuckle thriller. Both elements work independently of the other here with neither reciprocating a ton of value. There is much to marvel at from performance/editing/sound and social commentary perspectives across the scope of the film, but cohesion is not one thing it has going for it.

    Upgraded since last viewing. What stood out this time was just how economical this picture is... Carpenter packs a hell of a lot into 90 minutes, even with that absurdly drawn out fight scene. A Western at heart, but also an ingenious bit of pulp sci-fi that deserves canon recognition.
