Life of Crime

Life of Crime - this neo-noir based on an Elmore Leonard story is a solid modern attempt at film noir. While the lighting is not the typical shadows and light and the story has a more comedic touch than most of the noir cannon.  This movie is about a botched kidnapping attempt set in Detroit in the late 70s. Jennifer Anniston is the kidnapping victim of 3 hoodlums that don’t quite jell as a unit but  manage to kidnap the wife of a philandering sleazy businessman portrayed by Tim Robbins. This movie is not for everyone and probably won’t satiate the film noir purists -but I enjoyed it. B-
