    The plot twists are fine, but the most satisfying surprises come with the story and tone. The late pointed politics briefly felt shoehorned, until I realized they were there all along, disguised as a comedy/thriller of manners.

    It really is fun though. The door opening on Iris doing toe touches is an all-timer sight gag.

    I can't wait for the director's cut with no Jared Leto.

    If you believe a lot of the plot summaries for this, there's a shot a few minutes in that qualifies as a spoiler. Spoiler alert: it's not a spoiler. It's not that kind of movie.
