jooley's rating of the film Demolition

Parts of it work well as a muted exploration of grief, but the consequence-less emotional detachment started feeling really dry after a while and as the guy got more gleeful, I started to suspect he was, in fact, a psycho. The performances are all well worth watching and there's an interesting (but slight) surrealist vibe, so I quite liked it in the end even though I had different expectations.
