It's a crime based movie. There are criminals doing criminal things. And that's pretty much where the formula dissipates. I'm not about to spoil this movie, but to understand, especially lately, I've had a difficult time finding movies I could tolerate from beginning to end, much less enjoy, ones that have those inevitable lulls that have you thinking "if this doesn't pick back up soon I'm outta here," THIS one I enjoyed just about every single minute. The story line was one I've never seen before, EACH actor was fully on his game and just fantastic. It has action that leaves you breathless not so much for it's intensity but for it's emotional content. Off-beat enough to make you chuckle frequently, cameo appearances that'll get to you, but the feature guys just blow this up hugely. Christopher Walken's best role in a long time of many great ones, Woody Harrelson makes a unbelievable character live, Sam Rockwell is at his best, a bit crazed but with a bizarre continuity to his mania, and Collin Farrell JUST right as a writer that slides sideways into a story that you couldn't write and make anyone believe really happened. The supporting cast has many luminous character actors including Tom Waites, Harry Dean Stanton, Crispin Glover, Zeljko Ivanek, no one is just scenery it seems. Just honestly one of the best times I've had watching a movie all the way through the first time in quite a COVID while.
