This movie is what it is. "Do me a favor, don't do me a favor" (line from film) It is a fresh film parallel of american demoralized libertarianism. Subtlety is what makes film art! Do you really expect a crime film to fit your expectations of decency-who is desensitized? Look or listen to the big picture-do you think that the political rhetoric was just back ground noise? There is more here than just another mob movie.
