Life of Crime, Daniel Schechter 2013
By Ali Tenenbaum
This picture oozes Elmore Leonard: Detroit in the 70’s, unpolished common criminals and a tinge of humor that is subtle and occasionally brilliant.It’s quick, energetic, fun and well acted. Aniston and Robbins are both a bit bland but the others are outstanding. Daniel Schechter (the director) clearly emerges as a talent, now I'm curious to see his other movies. It won't win any Oscars, but this more-than-solid, entertaining flick is perfect for movie-night at home.
A bit racy for grandma - but she’ll like it.There is probably too much “inappropriate” stuff for kids under, I don’t know, let's go with 15 (really, I want to say 13).You decide.
