entertainment value
A character study of a bumbling attempt to recover some toxic masculinity, that mutates to murder. W.H. Macy makes it watchable. Low Mamet.
genre Thriller
synopsis Seemingly mild-mannered businessman Edmond Burke visits a fortuneteller and hears a remark that spurs him to leave his wife abruptly and seek what is missing from his life. Encounters with strangers and unsavory people weaken the barriers encompassing his long-suppressed rage, until Edmond explodes in violence.
