Quotes

Danny Dunckelman: [in ending the first meeting with his neo-Nazi client] Do you have any reason for wanting me on this?
Mike: Like I said: you're a humanist, liberal Jew, so you gotta do your very best.
Danny Dunckelman: Oh, yes, that's right... 'Course. I forgot.
[uneasy chuckle]
Mike: In an ideal world, I'd have you eliminated. In this world I need you more than anyone.

great until the last 20 minutes
6 March 2017 | by drake-harbingerSee all my reviews

This was an 8/10 until the final 20 minutes. Then it got very, very stupid.

I suggest you watch it. It is worth watching, but ugh, the end blows hard. It progresses from an insightful, touching movie to...ugh.

Watch it. You'll see.
