    Dang this was a good ass movie. Like Fargo's little brother, but somehow simultaneously sweeter and twists the knife harder. Such empathetic character richness.

I walked outside as the sun was about to set feeling uplifted and grateful. I immediately knew I was going to see the 7:15 showing. I have never done that before in my life.

    The first viewing simultaneously washed over me and whipped and throttled me around.…
