    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Could very well have been the kind of movie that is dismissed as Chinatown in Texas, but Sayles’ script is tight, his direction yields realistic and layered performances and his editing and overall vision is evident in the way he uses blocking to drive the narrative forward in clever ways.  A conventional police procedural that plays out unconventionally.

    Leading men used to have catcher’s mitt faces. We need to get back to that.

    I like that they spent the bare minimum amount of time trying to tug at our heartstrings Pixar-style and then got right back to beating the ever-living shit out of some turtles. Kids loved it.

    What if Parasite was about food and was also bad?
