Somehow, back then, that film went under my radar. I must have been doing something really important when the trailer came out… or something really dull. Anyway, not that anyone cares, not knowing anything about it, I watched it and, 5′ into the film, I figured out that it’s, somehow, a Cohen brothers film. The disappeared Clooney does a spot on job, if you ask me, behind the camera. The acting is there, the character hyperbole is instantly obvious, and all the Cohen atmosphere is overwhelming.
Having said all that, the film did overly poor, and the reviews were bad, bordering horrendous. I can see why some of them but the bad blood and the personal-level animosity, feels entirely uncalled for. Dark comedies are not for everyone. Suck it up!
