Pretty good slow-burn mystery.

6/10 (B-)

This should've been released in the 90s. Performances are good, character study is okay(ish), exposition is ridiculous, twist ending is ridiculous, soundtrack is pretty good though; more atmospheric than Hollywood's been producing recently.

SPOILERS

The Berlin scene. At the end, the guy playing her grandson mentioned screwing up Berlin - the way Roy was ambushed there coupled with the grandson's dialogue tells us it was the first attempt at cornering Roy - but because the script didn't want us aware Betty was doing a double-con, nothing about the two attempts share any resemblance: the misdirection of the script contradicts the eventual characters. The real Betty revealed to us in the end - Lilly - would've never attempted the confrontation so feebly. It's a stupid movie.
