Very well put together edit about my favorite John C. Reilly character. A solid short.

The end is troubling on a couple of different levels. On the level of what's going on, it hurts to see this happen to Jim. There's no resolution there. This is not a critique, however, that's just how that shit went down. The second level upon which this is troubling is a critique. Yes, there was only so much one could do with this story from the source. But, stylistically, it feels wrong to end so abruptly. It'd have been nice for a wind down. Maybe a snippet of "One Is the Lonliest Number" played over shots of the city, or something along those lines. Sorry, not trying to say how it should have been done, just saying it didn't feel right how it was done.

But I still loved this, great work.
