I can’t, and so won’t, attempt to describe the film’s success at dealing authentically with its ostensible subject. But I will say that as a continuation of a theme he’s dealt with since his first outing as a director, Hard Times, it’s an unqualified success. It says, like so many other Hill movies, that our bodies cannot contain the ambition of our souls. We will be betrayed by our frames.
