We’re introduced to Margot Robbie’s character Annie, a beautiful and mysterious waitress, working at the End Of The Line Cafe, which is located in a train terminal in an unnamed city. The hit men Alfred and Vince are eager to cash in on their big paycheck from the mysterious Mr Franklyn, who gave them the hit in the first place. However, it’s not long before Alfred falls for Annie and things get complicated.

Several storylines intertwine in this neo-noir dark fairytale styled thriller. They come full circle in an unexpected way. It’s a film that’s not for everyone. You’ll either love it or hate it. I loved it. It’s stylish and entertaining. The characters are intriguing which draws you in. If it weren’t for the characters, I don’t think I would have enjoyed the film as much.

Some of it was quite predictable. I remained sceptical about all the characters. None of them were to be trusted. There’s a lot of twists so you have to be aware when watching the film. Everything in the film and about the film is stylised and if you don’t like weird and bizarre then don’t watch this film. You’ll only enjoy it if you’re a fan of weird.

It’s the type of film that you would benefit from watching more than once. With the nonlinear narrative and the different stories taking place simultaneously, there’s a lot to try and keep up with so I think it would take several viewings in order to pick up on everything and completely understand the plot.

It is just nuts. Just when you think you know what’s going on, something will knock you off your feet. I really enjoyed it and I’m so excited because I’m definitely going to watch it again.It had some beautiful shot choices, flawless acting from the whole cast. The film has received a lot of negative reviews which is a shame. There isn’t much originality in the film but I’m a sucker for this type of style. Don’t let the reviews put you off, everyone should watch a movie and make up their own mind about it.
