seems to be quite a good one, wouldn't mind catching it.

apparently the real-life Billy Moore makes an appearance in the movie

This was pretty damn good. It's raw, intense and Cole delivers a proper lead performance. It's quite a story, the real Moore has been through a lot of tough shit. Recommended.

I agree. It seems like no one even knows this is a thing? A24 is on radio silence about it.

I loved how it limits subtitles because Moore had no clue what anyone was saying most of the time. The one take fight scene in the middle was pretty cool as well.
