Sometimes I just like to be contrary....
Btw as for being Tarantino-esque rip off...does Reservoir Dogs ring a bell? Jackie brown
It does have a certain Tarantino vibe.
For me, the difference is there is significantly less black humor and the characters are not as "sharp" as QT usually paints them.
With this movie, the characters appear more realistic, more like the kind of people actually involved in this stuff (IMO).
At times, what was happening on-screen, such as the long static camera shots of the characters simply talking, often created an illusion of a documentary.
Very cool, very clever filmmaking.
