    ★★

    I really, really should’ve cried more than I did. A lot more. But, David Gordon Green is such an emotionless director that none of the manipulative biopic cliches that are jammed into the script ever manage to hit home as hard as they should.

    I was also extremely disappointed by how painfully average Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance was, here. Good, yes… but far from anything special. Oh well. (He was better in Bubble Boy. But, well, duh.*)

    ★★★

    Ha... I saw this last month when it was first released on iTunes, and then complete forgot to review it anywhere. Oops...

    It's good, though. I mean it. Outside of some occasionally very serious pacing issues, this is a sharp, fun heist flick.

    I guess it's not very memorable, though, now is it?

    "No one understands the lonely perfection of my dreams."

    Michael Fassbender should get a nomination for this. He won't, but he should. He's so fucking good.

    Outside a handful of problems (mostly some minor pacing issues in the second act, but also some minor horror movie clichés here or there), I loved every second of this film. Fassbender's just a wicked delight, the production design is amazing, and Ridley Scott manages to build up a great deal of tension and dread throughout the film's fairly basic, familiar story arc.

    ★★★½

    I honestly don’t quite know whether this is some sort of millennial masterpiece or a steaming pile of shit.

    I do know that I (briefly) felt compelled to write quite a long piece on this film, and that, while watching, I was enjoying whatever it is I was given.
