Dad bod Farrell by tooth, by claw. There’s a lot of talk of stabbing stomachs at the Last Chance Hotel. Verdant bracken, the bay laps the shore. Feral singles in the turgid wood. A brutal film, richly imagined. John C. Reilly would like to be a macaw when the torture’s over.

Morose man mutters “daughter” into dry desert air. Remember, Neil Cassidy abandons Kerouac in Mexico. There’s prisoners & airplane carapaces & botched men’s room pick-ups. Poolside of frat bro’s, the nothingness sets in. This is it. The Neil Hamburger movie.
