|10.12.12||Galaxy Flix Brewhouse|| Loved this. I feel like it's been a long time since Christopher Walken has had a real role in a movie. Not in a "hey, Christopher Walken is in this movie! There he goes!" way but in an actual playing-a-character type role where he can actually work. It was great to see him here, especially in the context of great actors like Sam Rockwell and Collin Farrell (great when working with Martin McDonagh, kind of like how Mark Walhberg has only shown up for PT Anderson and David O Russell) and Woody Harrelson. Actually there's a ton of good actors padding out small roles all over this film. It's a recurring feeling of pleasant surprise to see so many familiar faces constantly popping up.|
It's a little meta though, bordering on too much sometimes, but whatever. It didn't ruin the movie for me. It's also very much a dark comedy but I found all that twisted stuff pretty hilarious. Sharp filmmaking.
