    Legit one of the most boring movies about drug cartels I've seen.

    James Caan is fucking incredible in this.

    At once a look at male fragility and the need to present as bigger then oneself and the relationship between worker and boss which when shaved down of all nicety is presented in the full violence it is.

    This Mann guy sure knows how to shoot a motion picture.

    Not to give in to male power fantasy but the ending of this movie is so fucking cool.

    Like a lot of Defunctland's bigger work it's about artists in capitalism and people's work still being valued in that.

    A beautiful surreal masterpiece.

    There's a lot of things you can say to someone that makes it sound like an "Enough Said" movie. I think I heard that term from Griffin Newman on Blank Check but an Enough Said movie is a movie where you list random things that happen and go "nuff said." "Edgar Wright, Getaway Driver, All To Music, Nuff Said." It's way to try to boil down a movie for a quick pitch and EEAAO has tons…
