Nothing Lasts Forever is the sequel to The Detective (which was apparently also filmed - with Frank Sinatra, because the world is amazing) - which, as you say, makes sense. There's a lot of very strange infodumping about Joe's past, and his relationships, and his failures, and his successes, and his career, and his... etc. That is sort of more forgivable when you see it as a plot recap from the first book (at least, that's what I hope it was)! I now need to track down the voice-over, but the theme is pretty catchy! - - and that visual style is so wonderfully dated.
