This was relentlessly depressing. From the ugly spectacle of Phillip Seymour Hoffman rutting in the first scene, it went steadily downhill from there. Why would his wife be with him?! He's grotesque! I know he had money but not enough!
I have to confess, I only watched this because it had Ethan in. Good thing- Ethan has got rid of those Tom Cruise tombstone teeth. Bad thing: his hair in this film made him look like Ian Beale.
The actors did their best but I thought the script was nothing special. Telling it in a different order made it confusing, but not any more enjoyable. I think this film was trying to be Pulp Fiction, and ended up like a cut-price Memento. I hate flashbacks! Lazy writing!
By the end I felt I'd learnt nothing except, don't steal from your mum and dad. But I knew that anyway. Oh and that drug dealer guy looked like Kitten from Big Brother past.
