Vengeance (2022)


“It’s all regrets. You run as fast as you can from the last regret and of course you are just running straight into the next one. That’s life. It’s all regrets. That’s what they should say. No other way to be alive. It’s all regrets. Make ’em count.” – Sharon Shaw

Number of Times Seen – 1 (21 Aug 2022)

Brief Synopsis – A writer travels to Texas to try and find the killer of a one night stand that he had a few months earlier.

My Take on it – Intriguing idea that gives a modern spin to the murder mystery by having a writer attempt to create a podcast about his quest to solve a murder despite knowing very little about the area and population of people living near in the vicinity. BJ Novak is a great comedian, but he feels a bit out of his depth here in a drama like this one. The story moves along a bit too slowly and a story like this is expected to move at a faster pace in order to stay even more enjoyable.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – On an episode of the Office Ladies podcast, B.J. Novak said that he first got the idea for the film when he saw a poster for another film titled Vengeance at a film festival. He said that he was struck with the image of his face on a poster with that name on it, believing audiences would be surprised, since that’s not the type of work he’s known for. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
