3.5 out of 10 BUILDS WONDERFULLY... ENDS NOWHERE.
Brian from Kerry, 05 Aug 2012
Another potentially excellent film that doesn't know where to go in the end. Written by James Ellroy (LA Confidential) and helmed by the director (writer?) of the excellent 'The Messenger' (also with Harrelson -- who's terrific here as the 'Bad Lieutenant' style anti-hero, and one of the most intriguing delusionists since Travis Bickle).

Suddenly you'll discover it's all been a social 'study'. Yeah, one of them...
