this is a great movie have to see
An interesting tension runs through this film, and one that has been synonymous with the approach which Keanu Reeves has taken to much of his work in the last few years: measured, precise...just barely restrained. It has served him well most particularly, in this instance, where professionalism meets bewilderment, and pain must allow for resolution. The character's savage civility allows for nothing else, and, ultimately, will settle for nothing less, despite the destruction of ideals, of connection, and of self. There was loving work, here, of craft - and, tellingly...it shows.
I thought this was a great movie, I never got bored from watching it.
