Inspite of being released far too soon after the Tarantino hype, this beats Pulp Fiction and Resevoir Dogs hands down. On the surface it's just a bank robebry film, which semi-explores issues of morality, AIDS, death, drug abuse and prostitution. However, look a little closer and a weaving line of complexity appears which slowly dances through the plot, backed up with some excellent photography, set design and stunning lighting effects, considering the budget.
Personally, I really enjoyed this film, it was both mature and beautiful, exploring issues that not many would have the nerve to. A very intelligent and well though out plot and some excellent sets - a red bank vault?
As with all films of this subtle complexity, I don't think it will be to everyone's taste, but if you liked Donnie Darko, and managed to unravel the sub plot to Mulholland Drive but like a less surreal film, try this one on for size. Films that make you think, now there's an idea?!?!?
