This was a pretty ambitious presentation to a neat story, but this thing really stalls in the 2nd act and becomes super fucking repetitive. The three performances were pretty dope especially from the pimp, who takes over when there is the tonal shift, and capitalizes. Waited in line for 2 hrs at Sundance for this in Jan 2020, it would have been a meh from me then, and its meh now.
I initially went into this movie thinking, “ok its a fable, lets just watch and see how the direction adds to the story”. After watching it though, I couldn’t stop thinking about the implications of every decision and I see why David Lowery loves this legend.
Pretty much, my man Dev is a lazy shit night that hangs out in a brothel on christmas eve like a g. Hes looking for some free clout and he takes the easy way…
