Overview

Viewing Notes

Unconventional narrative that intertwines the alternating stories of three men surrounding a murder mystery and how they link together. Was challenging to adjust to this during the first hour as I wasn’t entirely sure what the hell was going on. Once I settled into the unusual narrative things improved and the final third is great. Would be a good one to revisit now that I know how it plays out and can the pieces together.
