    This was NOT what I expected but I absolutely loved it. The exact opposite of an erotic thriller—it's just the story of a man who WANTS to find sexy danger, but doesn't realize that it's completely fake as a concept and gets overwhelmed when he finally finds some people willing to construct it for him. I love how at pretty much every point (except for the singular pivotal moment that fucks up everything) Bill just acts like a completely normal…

THIS IS SUCH A STRONGLY ARGUED PIECE OF CONTRARIANISM THAT I CAN'T NOT RESPECT IT. DAVID LOWERY DO MACBETH AS A SCREWBALL COMEDY NEXT
