In the Heart of the Beast Urging Support

While he’s in his motel room, Travis melts down an unidentified opioid drug in a spoon and shoots up in his arm with a hypodermic needle. Heroin or fentanyl, or something else, the viewers do not know. (Director Ivan Sen’s Limbo is eerily similar to John Sturges’ 1955 Bad Day at Black Rock.)The first potential [...]
