Twitter Capsule: Committed to writerly milieu and abrasive vision. Moss, Pryce impress. BUT. Maybe more purgatorial than necessary?

VOR:   Perry's clearly devoted to the close study of caustic personalities, even more jagged here than in The Color Wheel. Daring, but will pay different rewards to different viewers.
