a lot of filmmaking is not doing what might normally be done. there’s a scene in this film where the protagonist needs to get rid of a woman for her own safety…she doesn’t get the hint so he needs to berate her so that she’ll leave. the director doesn’t cut to the protagonist when he does this, though, and i think it’s a good decision because it keeps the protagonist sympathetic. nevelle brand plays a criminal and does so to good effect. i like that guy. the lead, however, could have been better.
