Josh: Wait, you mean Delaware, I thought that was dead.
Lockhart: That's resurrected, we need to clean up the Reynolds account in case those fucks at AML decide to do their job.

The Good And The Not So
21 November 2018 | by xkh-33182See all my reviews

The film is gorgeous to watch and begins with an interesting premise. The scenery and the intrigue are enough to power the viewer to motor on. The bulk of the story, however, really makes little sense. That so many otherwise smart or aware people would either be conned or allow themselves to be herded and do nothing to resist is inexplicable. Scripts need to try harder nowadays The reference to Ivanka and Donald is gross - I assume even in deep Republican country ... I hope - and should be disturbing to most.
