Two different people perfectly suited for each other separated and brought back together by external factors time and time again, from high school, to college, to their mid 20s. Realistic performances and an intimate direction keeps this adaptation from falling to a very possible cheesy and melodramatic route and is instead very poignant and makes for a fine piece of epic romance drama.
Should've been full on lynchian tbh, that hallucination halfway through was great but a lot of it falls flat and Tom Hardy's hilariously hammy performance only carries it to a point. I'm thankful Trank tried to do something different and crossover genres and tones but the material isn't there. The whole movie is built around capone losing his mind and people trying to take his buried money, but it doesn't have much development and we barely learn anything about him, aside from a lot of grunting and shitting. Worth watching for some cool creepy scenes and hardy at his most nic cage but that's it
