Hard Times

Tweet Review by Dean Duncan May 8, 2015 @deanduncan63

Saw Walter Hill’s #HardTimes. Plays like the offspring of The Sting & California Split, but jettisons the slick of the one, …

… the at least partial obfuscation/impenetrability of the other. The result is a clear-eyed, unsentimental, proportionately hopeful look …

… at tough prospects & limited lives, & the decency & sufficiency that can still attend them both .
