Gets worse every time we re-watch it. McKay’s style gets more obnoxious each time, and while he had an opportunity to give this story the same clarity Scorsese would in one of his biopics, he instead leaves the whole thing confused and kind of messy. The only reason it works is because everybody in the film is confused, too. Still, McKay shows promise here, even if he’s sloppy. (Too bad his potential never developed any further with Vice.)
