I'll be honest, I had never heard of this movie. I went to the movies for the sake of going to the movies and Isle of Dogs wasn't playing for another 3 hours and I'd seen everything else, so I went and saw this.
It has a really good story line. The main character is a criminal, and normally you think of criminals of just overall bad people. But you see that despite being a thief, or what society would call a "bad person" he still has compassion, empathy, and general human decency.
Some of it was a little unrealistic. Such as, if you're a burglar, you're not going to drive a bright orange Volkswagen from 30 years ago, because that's too obvious. Likewise, you're not going to leave someone bloodied and tied up in the back of a Maserati. That's like a $300K car.
I enjoy the ending, because it's not a happy one. The problem gets resolved, but it's not a happy ending at all. It makes you wonder if, while the main character(Sean) was acting out of good and compassion, if it was really worth it given all that happened along the way.
