3.5/4 

This is a well-acted and slickly-directed crime thriller that also plays with the emotions, as it involves nuanced characters with real loyalties and obsessions.

The dark side. Implied incest, crooks, con artists, fear, greed, violence, losers. The book by Jim Thompson is even grimmer, but this will do to mess with our minds. Well acted, raw material.
