    Oh man what a flick. In his niche role, Jeff Bridges is absolutely incredible; that "boozy, down-on-his-luck albeit incredibly good at what he does southern guy" role, ala Bad Blake in Crazy Heart. Hailee Steinfield's dialogue as Mattie Ross seemed a bit intelligent given the era and the fact that she's a farm girl, but she did a fantastic job as well. And Matt Damon was great, as usual. All in all, a superbly acted film; wish I would have watched it sooner.

    I loved this movie because the lead character (Michael Stuhlbarg) has all the reason in the world to turn into a whining loser, but instead, no matter what happens, he maintains his hopeful view on the world. It's such a clever movie. A brilliant (and very dark) comedy.

Just an incredible story and superb acting (not only with Affleck) throughout. 5 stars!

I liked this movie a lot because it fits nicely into two of my favourite sub-genres: prison movies and movies with ridiculously vulgar violence scenes. Written and directed by the same dude who did Bone Tomahawk (S. Craig Zahler), it's not really for the faint of heart or those looking…
