    Rewatched this with knowing the context of its relation with Le Samouraï and reading about the film. I ended up now loving it. The jokes land when needed and the dramatic beats hit hard. My favorite thing about every Jarmusch film is the focus on mood. His films are often relatively relaxing and fully immersive. The acting here is awesome and the world explored within the film is fascinating. The music in this film complements to RZA, may have been my favorite aspect and I will definitely be listening to this soundtrack a lot. Anyways I highly recommend this film.

    A great set up and a great pay off. While I preferred the set up, the third act was satisfying nonetheless. Mitchum is in fine form here and is bolstered by a brilliant cast. Greer is excellent, and Douglas is a great foil. The film looks great and is incredibly well written. I really enjoyed this and would recommend it to almost anyone interested in classic Hollywood or film noir.

    I typically love film noir, so I am not quite sure why I didn’t get into this as I would compared to something else. I respect the low budget approach but feel it held the film back for me. I didn’t really love the atmosphere. It’s a well made movie that many seemed to have enjoyed, maybe I will like it more on rewatch. It’s still worth watching, and at an incredibly short length, it’s not much of a commitment.

    The jokes are quick and snappy with a fairly entertaining story. There’s a lot in an under 90 minute runtime and I highly respect that. Great stuff!
