How on earth does this movie only have two reviews (so far) on IMDb?
The casting couldn't have been better and Iggy Pop is a stand out as an old rock star. Hmmm... I wonder how that could be!
Everyone except the dopey pool boy has a plan and they unfold at a leisurely pace until the final line is spoken.
It's difficult to talk about the movie without giving the game away but I was reminded of a similar movie in both style and substance... the superb 1987 noir (yes, noir), Black Widow... and the similar movies that it spawned.
This is an 'adult' thriller... there's not much in the way of actual violence. No shouting and no infernal young people in the way. Any thinking person and fan of legato measured dramas will enjoy this.
The songs are well chosen, the photography is exquisite and there's not a second wasted.
