Post Hit Man

Hit Man is a 2023 American romantic black comedy film produced and directed by Richard Linklater, who co-wrote the screenplay with Glen Powell, based on the 2001 Texas Monthly magazine article of the same name by Skip Hollandsworth. The film stars Powell, Adria Arjona, Austin Amelio, and Retta, and follows an undercover New Orleans police contractor who poses as a reliable hitman as he tries to save a woman in need.

Loads of fun, but also original, romantic and well acted. I was a little bit worried about high expectations with this, but I got more and more into it as it went a long. Powell just gives a great performance, with the different hit man personas (love his Patrick Bateman take), but he just nails the two main personalities of Ron and Gary too. And Arjona is sexcellent too, I used to (still do?) mix her up with Eiza Gonzalez, but I don't think I will anymore, great role from her in this. This sets itself apart for me with how it mixes its dark macabre elements with rom-com, just very well done. Another small masterpiece from Linklater, once again proving he's one of the great directors of his time.

I enjoyed it. Glen Powell won me over, great performance(s) here. By the end I felt a little hollow about the whole thing, like, what / why? But well made and performed.

Bish, maybe B+

how am I not myself?
