Jessica’s review published on Letterboxd:
There's a depressing inconvenience you get during interstate travel when you exit for fast food but chose your exit poorly and it's suddenly 2 miles to McDonald's and you're like "damn!" Then, you have to drive through some awful gray town and struggle to ramp back on your way. That headspace is the setting of this movie.
Being from a rural area myself, I'm not convinced that has much to do with the reality of life in flyover country. We're not all that impaired, abusive, and demented! This movie takes place in an uninspired impression- like the first snap thought when considering a shoot in Georgia for tax incentives. And within that impression is a lot of other unsavory garbage and woman hating. Still, more fun than Sicario!
