Terrible acting, screenplay and direction.
it is finally so absorbing because it plays like a lyrical road odyssey that’s also a detective story.
The story-telling is good with flashbacks.The film is both funny and heartbreaking. You smile in a scene and get a soulcrushing revelation in the next.
The movie's neither hopeful in contrived ways, nor hopeless in different contrived ways. Somehow it manages to be wonderful
