How to Get Out of Buffalo will be released this Friday at 10:30 p.m. (BSB time) on TNT
Like a downward spiral, the relentless pursuit of money does not include considerations of character and illegality. When you want something at any cost, a terrible feeling of impunity arises to live in a great all is well, a hurricane where everyone is swept away by their greed. And that’s how the toxic collectors industry was born in the United States. Amid unhealthy techniques of manipulation and the accumulation of illegal fees, faceless men and women carry out the most diverse machinations, creating a chronic problem in the country. And that underworld takes center stage in the new original TNT-comedy-drama, titled How to Get Out of Buffalo.
Peg wants money here. Initially to pay for her studies at a prestigious university, she focuses all her strength and her descendants on drug trafficking (inherited from her naughty father) to make this dream come true. But the curves of life offer him a more ambitious surprise and what studies would not guarantee in record time, life as an illegal debt collector does, setting off on an inexhaustible journey of more money for sheer ostentation.
No wonder greed is biblically condemned. As Leaving Buffalo, directed by Tanya Wexler, shows exactly the damn vicious cycle that it, associated with pride – one of the Seven Deadly Sins – is able to generate, affecting the lives of multitudes of people as in a colossal domino effect. And Zoey Deutch is here the effervescent personification of all this avarice. Quarrelsome, deliberately scandalous, and easily defined as someone with blood in the eyes, she confronts Peg, a young woman who only knows cheating as a way of life and goes in search of endless money. If a higher education course was your goal before, today it’s all about having money, for those who know how to have a little more.
With an energetic performance that snatches everything and everyone in a fraction of a second, Deutch here shows its full potential to be overactive, full of emotional outbursts and facial expressions that even carry a few references to the city’s most natural profile. from Buffalo. . Fun and contrasting, she is a kind of anti-heroine. None of this charms us. Nothing about her makes us want to identify with her. But it is impossible to take your eyes off him.
Her performance is put into orbit by supporting characters who unfortunately don’t follow the same level of mastery. Always on the sidelines – both in the plot and in their respective narrative constructs, Judy Greer and Noah Reid are constantly eclipsed by it. But the one who emerges at his height and still defies our memory is Jai Courtney, who takes on the air of a pimp and king of crime, resulting in a combination that almost makes him disappear in his own role. And his dynamic with Deutch is one of the nicer parts of the whole plot.
With a denouncing bias, which develops in the plot without losing the creative approach of a film that aims after all to entertain its audiences, Buffalo’s Como Quir is another of those gems born at film festivals. Shooting at Tribeca in 2019, the new comedy-drama has its little stumbles in some of the arcs developed by screenwriter Brian Sacca, but avidly flies, delivering a delightfully intense and fun experience. An excellent program to savor on a Friday evening.
