| Dark, clever, engaging back-stepping mystery
If you loved Fargo, either the movie or the brilliant TV series, you will really like this movie. The writing is sly, clever, and funny in the midst of a tale of a small town bank heist by the gang who couldn't think straight. If the story had played out in time order, it might have been ordinary. But because the tale is told in reverse, stepping back one day at a time, the mystery builds in a way that I bet you won't see coming.

Even so, Shimmer Lake is more about the characters and what drives them than about the storyline. Other reviewers here have complained that they couldn't follow the story. I say: just focus on the characters and how they are toward each other to pick up clues along the way. I'm going back for a second viewing now with that in mind.
