Why on earth has this got such high ratings
Why on earth this has a good score rating I will never no, it was so painful to watch, 90 minutes you will never get back again. There is very little story line, with acting that's I would class as a B movie rating, if you are glutton for punishment then watch it, otherwise give it a wide berth and watch something else, watching paint dry would be more entertaining than this.
Good concept - bad execution
This movie has potential - some great scenes of down and out people in the American South - very gritty and well done. But alas the whole production didn't pull together, photography was to shaky and closed in. The cop with a tortured past has been done so many times and needs to be downplayed, all those flashbacks are boring. Very little research into the mind of serial killers, their trophy gathering, symbols and so on. Wanna be True Detective but fails as its overplayed and comes across as slightly misogynistic in some violent and crude scenes.
Great idea but hard to watch
This film has a great idea: following a dollar bill as it changes hands, through a cast of mostly dysfunctional gritty characters, through a tale of murder, alcohol, sex, redneck racism, and drugs in Louisiana. What's not to like? Only a few things: 1. The script 2. The acting 3. Wiggle-cam (not enough to induce nausea, but definitely enough to be annoying, intrusive, and an affectation). This is one of those films where it's hard to tell what's worse, the acting or the script. I think it's a tie. The cinematography is well crafted at times, if you can see through the wiggle-cam, but not enough to redeem the rest. I sat through the whole thing, but it was difficult.
Follow the money
Harry (John Freeman) sometimes called Larry, sometimes called Eric, is an investigator. There has been a series of murders in the Black Bayou among which was his wife. Harry has a number of issues which include his love of drinking, drugs, and prostitutes. He is under federal investigation. His nephew gives him a marked "lucky" one dollar bill, which Harry immediately spends. The film follows the travels of the dollar bill to connect the story. Harry was a pathetic protagonist. The film was dreary and lacked memorable dialogue or scenes. Guide: F-word, sex, nudity
Reasonable acting for a poor script
Though I do not approve of them flash backs can be used effectively on occasion. This is not one of those occasions. The cast act up to a poor script in this bore of a film and some credit is due. For me it also suffers from a clichéd and predictable storyline in which the baddies are all bad and the goodies are bad too but with reason, and we are expected to sympathise. But it is impossible to identify with the two dimensional characters in this film and any attempted symbolism in a dollar bill is pure tosh. Don't waste your time.
