I’m still in shock that anyone made this movie. It’s one of those rare moments where someone takes a truly amazing story and makes a truly amazing film out of it.
Set in what could be an alt-history now or a slightly future us, it is a thriller with a good old-fashioned dab of satire. Weaving together the story threads of a fascist government, a deep conspiracy, a man out for revenge and a young woman accidentally caught up in it all, the film is really about human strength and weakness.
The cast list alone knocks your socks off, but the dialogue is also truly delightful.
