Director Korine expertly maintains a sustained tone throughout the course of this woozy movie. Despite experiencing what would seem to be life's highs and lows none of the events of the story seem to affect McConaughey's character and he glides though it all like a stoned Forrest Gump. Even though he commits some pretty serious crimes none of it seems to stick and he constantly falls ass-backward into sex, drugs and money. The most fantastic element of the story is really that everyone else in his world seems to share his good nature and no evil befalls him. Also that he wrote a whole book without running out of ribbon for his typewriter.
