A good movie

Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. Eventually, even if not everything did work and even if it was nothing really original, it turned out to be such a disturbing movie, I don’t think I will soon forget it. Basically, this movie had 2 things that worked really well. First, they gave us  this very ominous atmosphere, especially during the opening scene which was quite spellbinding. Then, of course, you had Matthew McConaughey who was just starting to make one of the greatest come-back ever in motion picture history. I mean, sure, the guy gave a decent performance in ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ which was the official start of the  ‘McConaissance’ but he was just so much more impressive in this movie, he gave here the darkest but also easily one of the best performances of his career. Only a few years before , this actor was famous for playing some boring pretty boys  and, somehow, he actually kept the same formula here but gave this formula an extra dark edge which was quite fascinating.  Concerning the other characters, even though they were all some major losers and even though it was obvious from the start that their plan would be a major failure, they were still interesting.  Still, I had some hard time to swallow everything Chris did. The biggest problem I had with him was not really that he was a major f*ckup but the fact that he became seriously annoying as he kept hanging on his sister for no good reason. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of  its limitations, there was something quite fascinating about this really dark and disturbing thriller and I think it is definitely worth a look.
