6.4/10

Movie had no payoff but held my attention.
Sure it does, he kills SLJ. Covers the blood and his work is done, JCR and Gwyneth can go off and have a happy life
.
Might want to spoiler wrap that.

But IDK it just seemed a bit anti-climatic for me. Thought the ending might have something more substantial to say. The phone booth conversation at the end was great though.

I think the structure of the film feels quite uneven, by the end the payoff doesn't feel like much because everything leading up to that is a handful of good scenes kinda squished together. PTA knew how to write some interesting scenes back then but he didn't learn how to string them together effectively until his next film.

Fixed.
tbh, i was choosing between meh and good. But decided to go with "good" because it felt more appropriate.

You guys would hate film school if you're protective of spoilers for movies that are as old as the graduating high school class of 2015.
