This one really warms my heart, I have to say. Ethan Hawke is underappreciated in general, and this might be the performance of his career.

I guess I'll have to finally get around to watching it. I was pretty convinced Paul Schrader was washed after the unmitigated disasters that were The Canyons and Dying of the Light.
That's what fiction is for. It's for getting at the truth when the truth isn't sufficient for the truth.

Wait till you see Dog Eat Dog.
If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk

He gets a pass for Dying of the Light, since it was commandeered and scissored by producers. You should see Dog Eat Dog and First Reformed, the latter is one of last year’s best and the former batshit fun.
