Had to stretch to give it a three. After an hour I lost interest so did BJ and we turned it off.

This is a brilliant revenge story. In high school four teenage boys torment a fifth boy and sexually assault him during a party in front of everyone. This is his revenge. Now if everyone had an uncle like this. ;)

The crime thriller succeeded to pull wool over my eyes early on, thinking that it would be just a variant of "Suicide Kings 1997" until the revelations at the end. Liked the acting and fast pace but thought that the script kept the unknowns far too long, and when they finally came, it was like getting them from a fire hose. Had to take time watching parts again to make sense; too much work for entertainment. Didn't help without subtitles.

Black comedy is always in bad taste. For myself. It's close to garbage.

This is a really good movie and has a really good plot. One that you will not be able to figure out before the end. It is a comedy/drama to me. There were definitely some funny scenes. Worth watching.

The philosopher Marcel Proust said, "We say that the hour of death cannot be forecast. But when we say this, we imagine that hour to be placed in an obscure and distant future." ... There is never a convenient time for any of us to die. ... The eventual certainty for us all, the hour of our death, suddenly went from obscure and distant to a very unreal, reality. ... That if opportunity presents itself, do not hesitate, do not waver. Do not take time for granted. There is only now. ...

Basically there's seven fundamental notions, let's say, that reflect how our economy operates. There's scarcity, there's subjectivity, there's inequality, competition, imperfection, ignorance and complexity. But I believe there are eight. Luck.

You wouldn't know that this quote is one of the multiple twisty revelations, but you won't know it unless you are really smart or had watch the film:
And you've always said, failing to plan is planning to fail, well you can rest assured that while I'm still working out a few last details, I will have dotted all the i's and crossed all the t's, you have my word. So what do you
think, Uncle Eddie?

Since I've never set eyes on any of you before, the reason why I'm taped to this chair is not personal in nature, which makes this unfortunate chain of events... a business transaction?
