I honestly don't get what i just watched, the whole movie seemed pointless. I expected a lot more from this movie considering the cast it was dealt but it just failed, maybe my taste of movies isn't fit for such a dark twisted movie. Emile Hirsch and Matthew McConaughey were stand outs in the film and of course the director done a great job. but in all honesty not really my kind of movie. I won't spoil the movie for anyone but give it a watch, its a love it or hate it movie, when i first watched it i thought well that was alright but the more and more i think about it i think less of it. This is the first movie i have felt i needed to write a review about so give me some slack lol
