Gallo’s compact yet idiomatic mise-en-scène is nowhere more inventive than in his transfixing staging of Billy’s climactic act of vengeance in the strip club—a sui generis series of mind’s-eye tableaux vivants, lurid real-time freeze frames set, with incongruous perfection, to Seventies-era King Crimson. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Gallo’s directorial debut is one of a kind, an eccentric, provocative comedy which laces a poignant love story with both a sombre, washed-out naturalism and surreal musical vignettes.

From the start, it’s so grungy that it’s weirdly captivating. By the time Gallo’s lo-fi joyride cruises to a stop, you’ve been so beguiled by its surprises, wrong turns, and chance encounters that you’d be disappointed by something more carefully worked out.
