[McCarthy] reminds us (with a particularly American sensibility) that this world is broken and tragic and not fair, and that pushing past that fact too fast is an error we can't afford to make, for the good of our souls.
With moments of true greatness and strong performances, the film still ultimately fails to live up to its potential for surprising reasons, while still being one of this year's most fascinating films to think about and discuss.
Half navel-gazing and half despair, and both feel like McCarthy's writing hallmarks wrenched tight to the point of self-parody. Even if that's the case, it's only involving in spasms, and the good parts go nowhere he hasn't been before.
