It’s a short, slightly surreal, bittersweet comedy heist movie which, like so many other small movies, deserves more attention than most generic output by Hollywood.
Taking place in 1983, it sets about stating its quiet message, with a desperate and frustrated Olyphant at its heart, (un)ably assisted by a mismatched group of three, including the frightening Bug (Stephen Eric Mc Intyre), pretty boy Billy (Rossif Sutherland, channelling a look and performance that kept reminding me of Billy Zane/Diedrich Bader, which I mean that as a complement), and his co-star from , Joe Anderson, as Donnie.
It’s a nice change of pace to see Olyphant in the role, even if you do suspect there’s evil afoot in his mind due to past experiences, but it’s another eclectic choice that shows the man’s versatility.
He also shows a physical adeptness during the fight scenes, even if the bald look is a slightly unusual one for him, as most of his other parts in action movies have never required such a high level of physicality.
, we’ve already seen him cracking onto a waitress at a wake for his friend, before engaging in a comical sex scene while a mortified Jennifer Garner hides behind a shower curtain.
Thankfully, there’s a lot more to his character in a film that I was extremely concerned would be upsettingly unwatchable from the get-go, starting as it does with a shot of a teary, distraught Garner at the funeral for her fiancé.
It’s a film that’s grown on me every time I’ve watched it, but it’s still a bit of an oddity, with its denouement seemingly better suited to a work of literature than a mainstream movie.
However, alongside Olyphant, there’s Freeman, Tom Sizemore, Thomas Jane, Jason Lee, Damian Lewis and an unrecognisable Donnie Wahlberg, who all ensure that the film is packed full of greatness, while the group of old friends are instantly likeable simply because of the actors chosen to portray them.
