    ★★★★½

    i’m not sure what i'm looking for anymore
    i just know that i’m harder to console
    i don't see who i’m trying to be instead of me
    but the key is a question of control

    can you say what you're trying to play anyway
    i just pay while you're breaking all the rules
    all the signs that i find have been underlined
    devils thrive on the drive that is fueled

    all this running around, well it's getting me down
    just…

    – We’ll let them steam.
    – It’s complicated.

    Guys. I don't know. Is this getting so much praise because it's got J-Law drinking heaps of alcohol and acting funny or because Bradley Cooper's curls are out of this world amazing? I really can't tell.

But the plot is old and presented in a way that is a little confusing, to be frank.
