      Thanks for reading!Report

    Agreed, it is a terrific movie, with hardly a wrong note played.

    Worth watching even if only for Jame’s Franco consoling a fellow convict on the gallows, with “First time?”Report

    I am currently on what feels like my death bed and I watched this yesterday. Wow. I’m not sure how I felt honestly. It was no doubt a good movie, but it was profoundly disturbing to me. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. It was just… I don’t know. I haven’t fully digested.
    Or maybe I had a fever dream, I can’t really tell right now.Report

    I hope you’re feeling better soon (if not already)Report
