Shocker: the one weak aspect of this one is Paul Newman's performance.
There are a couple of things that don't end up working as much as the film wants them to work, but it mostly achieves a great sense of thriller within, and an interesting character study. Though not always sure if it's an ensemble piece or just the leads journey, it definetly builds towards the former. Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Michael Shannon are terrific here.
And that initial credit sequence... what?
That third act, man.
That epilogue, man.
That score, man.
The wheat, man.
Casey, The Man.
