Week six is time for the crime category. Due to its potential similarity with the thriller genre I'm going to…
One foot in the door. The other one in the gutter.
Jerry and his two pals, Russ and Syd, are just looking for some easy money to help them break out of their nowhere lives in their nowhere town. Despite a bungled jewelry store heist which exposes their incompetence as criminals, a fateful event (and an old black-and-white film) convinces them that they can pull off an armored-truck robbery. While they are busy plotting their caper, their dysfunctional families spin out of control, all around them.
Unknown gem.....Vincent Gallo in likeable shock
A reasonable effort for a début directional feature, but the characters are one dimensional and the plot doesn't have enough layers. Lacks the power of, say, GoodFellas and ends up feeling a bit Pulp Fiction-lite.
Vincent Gallo was the coolest man in the world in '96.
Highly enjoyable indie drama.
Kind of an overlooked cousin of Bottle Rocket, definitely worth watching, and I found Vincent Gallo quite likeable here.
