    No, not the old TV show, but the relatively recent movie starring Michael Shannon? I saw it yesterday. I think the description of "genre bending" used by some critics is bang on. I quite enjoyed it, mainly because it had me buying hook, line and sinker a rather unbelievable story.

    Michael Shannon was excellent, as were his costars Kirsten Dunst (unrecognizable), Joel Edgerton, and Adam Driver.

    Yeah, I just saw it.

    Noticed in the end credits it was produced by Steven Mnuchin, not quite as famous then as he is now.

    Certainly kept you watching, but the plot was kinda ropey. Was waiting for the mum and dad to have a chat about how come their son turned out the way he did.

    Dormant, not necro. Your thread's from April this year not April 2006, eh.

    If I'd started a new thread you'd probably have made a snippy comment about using the search function ;-)

    Nah. Unlikely at the best of times , but particularly since I had to google the movie title.
