A movie about damaged people best enjoyed by damaged people
24 August 2017 | by mikebathoSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this. Look, there are a lot of people who I'm sure are perfectly fine who are leaving low, head-scratching reviews, but if you're a fairly damaged person, like myself, you'll probably get a kick out of the movie.

Don't expect a moral payoff, any wisdom, any heartwarming feels. It's a perfectly good way to kill a couple of hours.
