Who was it? Who crashed the party?
Well, that... that... that's simple. The guys who had been shadowing Anton, then tailing me... the guys in the Lincoln Town car. I can describe them. One is a fucking sociopath, who never finished first grade and who nobody likes. Another is a broken down family man, with nothing... nothing to show for his life. And the third guy... wears brown shoes and a black suit because he can't tell the difference between right and wrong.

If you're a fan of the detective genre, this movie is worth a watch.
The use of lighting and color throughout the film was a huge boon as it really drew you further into the mystery and storyline. The script was clever, maybe trying to be a bit too clever in linking metaphors and accurate(?) science.
The acting was above par-excellent from the entire cast and it is only when the scenes rely a bit too much on the script where things seem to struggle. (Whoever wrote the insults however get's a solid A-)
Is the movie cliché? Yes. However, I never found myself trying to fill in the next line or scene because I was never really bored watching the story unfold.
The soundtrack felt well suited and the overall polish on production was good.
I was pleasantly surprised with this one. Hope you are too!
