Southland Tales


 

southland_tales_mmrIn his follow up to the much acclaimed Donnie Darko, director Richard Kelly gave us Southland Tales. The complicated, info-dump to begin with is confusing and once the action begins we are left none the wiser as to what is happening. Multiple plot threads are interwoven throughout the story, with Boxer Santoros (Dwayne Johnson) central to almost all of them but Southland Tales suffers from having too many ideas. Packing them all into a single film when it probably would have been more beneficial to spread them out leading to this feeling cluttered, confusing and overly long.
