Quotes

Ray Wentworth: No, I am a cynic.
Gundy: No, I am a cynic. You are cynical. There is a difference. I never believed in the first place, but you, you wake up every morning disappointed to find the world the way it is, because you are a dreamer. Write the card, Raymond.

About a writer, most a poet!
24 May 2017 | by Reno-RanganSee all my reviews

At least it tried to be something fresh. The Netflix's experimental films giving great opportunities for small directors and stars. Not all the flicks clicks, but different than what we usually get from other production houses. So that's how I ended up watching it and its an appreciable effort, but the film was average. Although the end scene was really good, I mean that homeless person part.

The film is about an infamous greeting card writer and tells how his professional life stumbles upon. While trying to make a comeback, he has to face a couple of trouble, including his unexpected romance and to keep up the promise he had made to a rich guy. Till the final scene they kept the momentums surrounding them both. So it feels like an intentional drag, since the whole film depended on those things and nothing else.

Worth watching for Bob Odenkirk. The rest of the cast was not bad. Whatever the concept is, like, about a writer, kind of poet, but it avoids to exposing us the character how great he's with his work. So this is not a film with full details and should be watched without any expectation, or else better not think to pick it.

5/10
