Rated R · 87 min. · 2014



Based on a Pete Dexter novel, the film is directed by Mad Men's John Slattery and features Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christina Hendricks, Richard Jenkins and John Turturro. As you might expect with Slattery behind the camera, this is an actor's film all the way. The performances are uniformly excellent, and individual scenes pulse with energy and authenticity. But focus is lost once you step back for the bigger picture. Slattery appears to be aiming for a tone of ultra-dry nihilistic comedy, and achieves it in spots, but it isn't sustained.
