The first film adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel. The result is ... mixed. Some will enjoy the familiarly obfuscating noir-style dialogue and convoluted twists and turns of the crime caper narrative. Others will find its old school indulgence in stylish sexism and character-driven plot tiresome around the two hour mark (if not before). An impressive ensemble cast and a well made film, PTA's latest is entertaining enough.
