MM plays Kenny Wells a mining company guy with gold fever. His well-publicised weight gain would be more impressive were it not for his hyper-lordotic spine in any scene the belly is needed. I envy his good looks in this film too.
Nitpicking aside, this is a surprisingly low-key movie that tells the tale of avarice, hubris, and nemesis. Sort of.
There are some great down-at-heel scenes and some great tropical suffering.
Oddly it’s a film where almost no one seems to really win. And I liked that.
In the end you’re left wondering who was in on it.
MM could do a Hunter S Thompson to rival Johnny Depp’s based on his performance here.
