Gritty, Ugly, Bordering On Gruesome, Not Exactly Fun Entertainment.
I suppose some people require this sort of stimulation as entertainment in order to fill a void they feel in their lives. I don't. I wish I could say I enjoyed this movie because I really do admire the work of Liotta, Pitt and that Sopranos guy....OK, maybe not that last guy so much. Anyway, you'd probably like to have your dinner after this feature, since it's going to make you nauseous, provided of course you don't fall asleep first. In fact, I saw a midnight showing with about 12 other people and an infant. In the end, most everyone was snoozing, EXCEPT the baby.....due to the loud noises no doubt. That "Emperor's New Clothes" crowd that follows Pitt around in a gaggle will probably swoon at this farce, as usual. As for the normal people.....well, unless you're INCREDIBLY bored, I'd advise waiting for the DVD or stream. For all the expensive talent and 'artsy fartsiness," this movie is just plain dull. Skip it. You'll be glad you did.
