Written and directed by B.J. Novak, this gritty crime drama centers on a liberal, big-city podcast host who travels to West Texas to investigate the death of a former one-night stand. It’s a funny and sharp satire mixed set against the background of a bleak, Taylor Sheridan-esque landscape and puts us all on notice that Novak is just getting started. Ashton Kutcher and Boyd Holbrook co-star as just a few of the wildly colorful characters that help bring it to life.

4/5 stars
