Functions more as a diversion than a fully satisfying motion picture, although, for something streaming on Netflix, a “diversion” is usually good enough.
Despite the "Deliverance" vibe that permeates the production, "Blood Money" delivers a bit more.

Although there are individual moments that snap, crackle, and pop, the production as a whole is bloated and at times even a little tedious.
With "mother!", director Darren Aronofsky seems determined to baffle, infuriate, and divide his audience.
"Rebel in the Rye" falls into the trap that ensnares many a bio-pic: trying to present too broad a chronology in too limited a time.
It’s competently made and sporadically compelling but not likely to pique the interest of anyone unfamiliar with Morrissey.
A generally well-made but ultimately unsurprising excursion into the supernatural.
Despite being sold and marketed as a thriller, the most interesting aspects of "Shot Caller" are the dramatic ones.
The disappointment of what this movie could have been dogs it as it navigates safe, predictable roads to a preordained conclusion.

An Oscar-wannabe that didn’t make the cut and is being released in mid-August hoping to find a small audience.
