This movie is filled with so much violence, both overt and casual, that I had to distract myself with something else to do while I was watching it. Excellent performances all around (though I found Mr. Pitt to be annoyingly distracting–how convenient that one of the producers turns up as the savior) . This wasn’t easy to watch, but worthwhile.
Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home.
