Gave it a go tonite....
SO CLOSE and yet, so far.
Clever idea for a movie.
Excellent cinematography....for some reason, reminded me of Barry Sonnenfeld's aesthetic for Raising Arizona.
Director does the best he can with what he has.
Good performances from everyone except....(see below).
The lead actor is not very good and lacks gravitas to pull the main character off.
The movie can't seem to make up its mind what it wants to be.
Although there is a story here with some potential, the screenplay never really gels and, sooner rather than later, it slows to a crawl.
I really wanted to like this movie....alas, it doesn't work.
