The Death of Dick Long Review: The Death of Dick Long is an invitation to misery in Daniel Scheinert’s The Death of Dick Long, a photo of the crime committed in Alabama in which two fools try to escape the consequences of a deeply stupid night. Switching perfectly between mockery and sympathy with his protagonists redneck, The Death of Dick Long as a solo director of Scheinert will not generate the buzz of his entry into Sundance in 2016, he co-directed with Daniel Kwan, Swiss Army Man . with the characters who, despite all their bad decisions, are more complex than the stereotypes they seem to be.

They will soon want to leave their wallet or at least dispose of it appropriately, but cleaning up their damage turns out not to be their forte in The Death of Dick Long
