Slow and relaxing
24 September 2018 | by davidepsteiniphoneSee all my reviews

A slow kind of movie if you feel like you're going to have a slow kind of day. I've always liked Ethan Hawks and he did a great job directing the movie. I've never heard of Blaze Foley before I saw the movie and I don't plan to ever hear about him again, but we'll worth the choice to see the film.
