The story is interesting and provides for a powerful mix of drama and comedy with a lot of suspense. On top of that great directorship by Emir and outstanding acting by Johnny Depp, Jerry Lewis, Faye Dunaway, and Lili Taylor. Excellent music, camera work, and photography make this film to really stand out.
I wish it would have been slightly faster paced, but that might be just me spoiled by plenty of template Hollywood movies.
9 out of 10.
