Killing Them Softly

a tar-black sensory overload, particularly in its stunning first hour in which Dominik seems to read my mind about the filmmaking mode I respond to most viscerally (the "Heroin" needledrop the only Zemeckian ding here), whose "hey lay off a little, huh", reception at the time clearly delineates it from a world where we have no choice but to be perpetually logged into Ugly Imperialism, Dominik clearly ahead of his time by forcing us to be logged into the Normal Imperialism whose idealistic fallout we now can't escape.

This country's fucked, I'm telling you. There's a plague coming.
