Karyn Kusama Amerika Serikat, 2018

Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Destroyer

A missed opportunity by almost any measure. It’s not a compelling mystery, nor a fresh approach to L.A. noir. Worse, it’s not even entertaining. Kusama and her writers flip the genders and that’s pretty much about it. There are so many plot holes, incomprehensible character choices, unmotivated actions and lack of attention to detail that it’s hard to have any kind of emotional investment.
