This is one of the very worst films I've ever seen, and I'm not being funny. The majority of the film involves Pitt sitting in a car chatting with this other dude about nothing, or in a bar staring at the wall.

The sole scene in the film that was slightly interesting was the late James Gandolfini sitting on his hotel bed making jokes about prostitutes. The fact that I tried my best to laugh at that part showed that I wanted to give the film one moment of approval, but I just couldn't. It's shockingly bad.

I can't think of a better example of film makers disgracefully robbing 2 hours of my life from me than in the case of this film. It's a shame that Gandolfini couldn't make up for his appearance in this pile of crap before his death.

Can't disagree more, I thought it was one of the greatest movies I've ever seen. Beautifully directed, perfectly cast, and uncommonly ethereal. Amazing dialogue, too. Very original as well with intelligent political undertones.

Great film. Subtle, funny, kind of weirdly tense and it has great realistic performances.

Also the audio editing in the movie is mostly pretty phenomenal. The commentary on America's financial situation is great too and the pacing of the film was very unique and caught me off guard. Most people who critisize this movie are just critisizing it based on what they expected/wanted it to be and not actually on what the movie is.
