WOW! I don’t know if that’s a full on “WOW that was incredible” or a “WOW I survived that” but just WOW

A father travels to & through hell and we almost get as battered and assaulted as he does looking for his Angel/Devil of a Daughter.

It's not at all an easy watch, and I felt like I needed a shower when it ended. There's only one or two truly sympathetic characters in the entire film, and none of them are the main characters which makes this experience frustrating to go through.
