I hadn’t watched this in a long time, didn’t remember a ton, and kept hearing people praise it. I still find it pretty medium, maybe hurt the most by the casting of the main character. Dunne just doesn’t do much for me and his performance makes it confusing how I’m supposed to take certain things in the film. I know it partially wants to be a dark comedy, lynch-lite, but i’m not sure if the film wants me to laugh at the city or the protagonist. I almost get the feeling it is making fun of the yuppy fear of downtown new york in the 80s, but if that is the case, it doesn’t go far enough.
