gh’s review published on Letterboxd:
buddy noir fun vibes
similar style to The Nice Guys
Shane Black is great at depicting LA through a lens of surreal criminal reality. It’s a believable, vivid atmosphere with small doses of absurdity — these two variables play off each other countlessly throughout the movie. Never wanted it to conclude.
the vibe is perfectly concocted — blends of comedy & crime sooth my film-obsessed soul.
narrations are dope, especially when it’s by Iron Man
there’s a scene that was shot right by my work in lb
Robert Downey Jr is absolutely amazingly awesome,
& Val Kilmer has easily achieved forever-cool.
movies about hollywood always bring me joy
love love love, this. heavily a fan.
solid blu-ray purchase.
