Steven Soderbergh directs Don Cheadle, Benicio Del Toro and Brendan Fraser in this 1950s set neo-noir where a job goes wrong and two mismatched crooks angle for a bigger piece of the action and the price off their heads.
Filmed almost entirely with a wide fish eyed lens (which I liked) this has enough beloved character actors, tense moments and cool period details to hum and purr. Probably the best thing Soderbergh has done in a decade, feels effortless and exactly my jam.
