A man of loose morals, Joe is a self-sufficient lazy character who isn’t interested in winning our sympathy. He understands his women well, yet he’s unable to allow them to truly connect with him. With those who suffer most from these faults being innocent others, he’s no opportunity for reform.
A recommended 8.5 out of 10.
