The backwards narrative is an interesting twist but it doesn't add much to the film. A flawed mix of comedy and mystery, failing to succeed in either

Interesting idea that wasn’t quite executed correctly. In the end everything made sense and had an interesting twist, but it was too sudden trying to remember the event that happened in the end (which is the beginning) given that this movie has reverse chronology.

For a film that went relatively under the radar (at least to me), this has quite the cast. Beyond those listed in the movie poster, you also have John Michael Higgins, Adam Pally, and Wyatt Russell contributing. Combining this high caliber cast with a reverse linear presentation provided a quite engaging crime caper that had just enough dark comedy to keep things from feeling too dour. The structure of the film has a few fun payoffs throughout, but is ultimately used to set up the end (beginning?). The climax is given away as the final set piece starts, but it still felt pretty satisfying. At a brisk running time, I would easily recommend giving this a watch for something different than your standard crime fare.

Good news / bad news. Watching _Shimmer Lake_, I realized I'd already seen it before. The good news is that I didn't remember anything about it, so it was like watching a new movie. The bad news was I'd seen it before and I didn't remember anything about it. It's like _Fargo_ but without the quirk, so Fargone, I guess. It's a competent mystery with a good cast and an unnecessarily convoluted time-line that would suffice during a hangover but is as remarkable as boiled meat.
