Couldn't agree more. A typical Hollywood offering would have contained multiple flash-backs and lazy story-telling devices:
Our Man: "..but, I've told you i'm sorry. I didn't mean to hurt you and your mother... the affair, it meant nothing: she was just my clinical beautician.. she gave me botox and I gave her the father she never had! I would express my deep remorse more, but it's my face: I just can't move any of the muscles!"
Our man's daughter: ".. sc**w you! Here! Take this sextant
, shaving-kit and this old bag of flares and f**k off to Sumatra or something!"
