The performances are absolutely superb, and that's where the film wants to live.

Scott's hilariously hateful hauteur is able to counteract some falsely fuzzy notes in the ending.

Some have condemned this film for 'filthy content.' That's like condemning a hospital for being a place of disease. Kidd deals with 'filth' the way a surgeon treats a tumor.

The dialogue addresses our expectations, gets us laughing and stops the movie from becoming too obvious a character study.

Other than the slightly flawed (and fairly unbelievable) finale, everything else is top shelf.

The best American debut since Reservoir Dogs.
