ARN!!’s review published on Letterboxd:
I actually quite like Southland Tales. This has a lot to do with The Rock. I loved his little nuances and ticks. I thought he did really well with a strange character. Unfortunately the entire film is cast the same way. Richard Kelly cast a whole load of comedians in serious roles. One or two might have cut the mustard but its half the cast. Sarah Michelle Gellar can't hold up her end either. So the weight of expectation is on Rock. He really can't carry a movie. No matter how hard he tries.
So its 2 1/2 stars. One for Rock, one for "pimps don't commit suicide" and a half for Timberlake miming the Killers.
