Perhaps not the best film here that I’ve seen, but definitely one of my favourites. It is partly due to the entertaining cast (though admittedly all playing familiar roles), partly do the political backdrop and sense of americana that pervades the film, and partly to do with it’s commitment to absurdity and dark wit. Plus Richard Jenkins is great every second he is in this film, and any other.
The recession has hit even criminals,who are desperate when it comes to gaining money, but stingy when he comes to getting good help. It is bloody and brutal, grotesque and grim, and full of cynicism and wit. And I loved it.
