Great first outing by Taylor Sheridan as a director. This dude is a force. Loved the movies he has written, so was very excited for this. Maybe too excited, because I was expecting a little bit more, and was bit let down. I loved the story and certain lines of dialogue were really awesome, but other parts fell a little flat. The visuals and cinematography felt a little under considered, I think, vaguely like a TV movie in some parts.…
My roommate was complaining about this movie and I had seen it tons of times and always thought I liked it but I was listening to him and starting to doubt so I went to my room and watched it again for like the 10th time and oh boy was my roommate wrong and I now know that this is a perfect movie and one of my favorites.
What exactly this movie was trying to say, I must admit, I'm not quite sure. But man is it hilarious. And I'm totally fine with it just being that. I think we need more extremely absurd movies out there. The story was extremely bizarre but so heartfelt, I think even my parents would have been laughing, and I really appreciate that. Sometimes its just insanely fun to watch a movie that examines a subject and doesn't necessarily put its foot down one way or another.
