Written and directed by Brian Kopelman, who also wrote Rounders and Ocean's 13, Solitary Man is frustrating and emotionally unsatisfying in all the right ways. It doesn't offer an easy resolution, but it's an honest, bittersweet and unflinching film about human weakness and the alpha-male battle between pride and mortality. Simply put: Solitary Man is outstanding.
