    "Paul Dano was amazing as Eli Sunday. It couldn't have been easy to get slapped around by Daniel Day-Lewis and dragged through mud by the hair for how many takes it took them to film that scene. Gosh, this guy's commitment to acting is insane. "

    "Paul Dano is one of those actors not a lot of people know the name of, but have certainly seen somewhere. I was racking my brain to figure out where I've watched him before when I watched Okja haha. Anyway, he was great in this film!! "

    "Paul Dano is such a convincing creep in this movie. He has such an innocent-looking face but he makes it work somehow. I got the heebie-jeebies."

    "I've only ever watched Paul Dano in indie movies, so it was refreshing to see him in a different kind of role. He's not really a pivotal character in this movie but it was still fun to watch him. He makes me want to punch his character in the face, so that's good acting, right? :D"

    "I don't know what to say about this film... Dano and Cox's performances were excellent, but the plot just wasn't great, man. Makes you wonder about what could've happened if the actors were given better material to work with. "
