Yeah, I thought it was really bad. In addition to some things you already mentioned, I didn't think that the convoluted story structure worked at all and I really hated the sufficatingly dark and washout visuals and thought that it came off as an eXXXtreme parody of some of Eastwood's other movies. It would have taken alot for me to get over those two points, but very little of the rest of it was any good. One idea I did like was the unreliable narrator device, but that by itself wasn't enough. It's no Midnight In the Garden of Good and Evil, that's for sure.

I was just thinking about that movie, after watching some lame James Rolfe video about 10 movies that he doesn't love like everyone else does.
