I went in expecting nothing more than to be spared mediocrity and boredom. The only lure (promise of a worthwhile movie experience) was the presence of Jeff Bridges ... and he delivered. There were also two cast members that gave extremely good performances: Newcomer Cynthia Erivo, and the young Lewis Pullman. He looked somewhat familiar to me, and duh, his last name ! .... He is Bill Pullman's son !! Back to the movie itself .... I can summarize by saying that overall, it was highly satisfying in much the same manner that L. A. Confidential was. In the end, everything is nicely wrapped and concluded smart-and-efficient-like. You can't ask for much more !!!
