What feels like a really honest portrayal of love in all its forms, and the open-ended nature of the inevitability heartbreak that follows. Frank yet somehow whimsical, slightly detached and yet still emotionally gripping.
A+++++ Hilarious. Manages to walk the line between insanely dark and completely light. When it hits, it REALLY hits, when it doesn't it's still amusing. If there had been a bit of a stronger structure to this it would have really been amazing. That said, I totally laughed out loud a handful of times.
I don't know, in the end it didn't do it for me. It's a slice of life of three real dumb small town criminals... it has its moments, and they're really just moments- Bowie and his dog, Keechie's seduction, the prison break... but in the end there never feels like a point to it all, and everybody's so deplorable it's tough to justify recommending this movie.
