One senses an attempt on Scheinert’s part to pull off the kind of transformation that the Coen brothers achieved in films like Raising Arizona and Fargo. . . . But many of his characters, as entertaining as they are, don’t quite have the dimensionality to make that work. . . . That tonal mismatch aside, however, The Death of Dick Long is a delirious and entertaining dumbshit backwoods noir.
