    This could be one of the best movies of the year.

    Until it really isn't.

    Oscar Isaac + Paul Schrader make sense for each other though.

    Apart from Schrader's involvement this couldn't look more generic. But coming off of First Reformed... I'll probably watch it. Oscar Isaac isn't the pull he looked to be coming off of Inside Llewyn Davis and Ex Machina.

    Complicated movie and I don't know what to make of it --- it's one of those things that doesn't slide easily along some fresh/rotten axis --- but E's post above sums up the experience perfectly.

    First hour == wow, this might be the best thing i've seen all year
    Second hour == what the...
    Ending == wait, why did i want to see this anyhow?

    Still think it's worth it. Weighty, contemporary, sleazoid drama with some good themes was refreshing. Plus, ace performances all around.

    Doubling down on the Pickpocket ending. I enjoyed how long he held that shot.
