Pseudo thriller boomerangs on writer
Whew! Bought this for a dollar at Dollar Store.
Spent 99 cents too much.
Man catches glimpse of car fleeing the scene of murder where his wife
was killed. He goes to NYC to search for a cab with a scratch among
14,000 cabs. He races his dog on the side with a bunch of Asian dog racers.
Alice Parker has a crush on him and frames Roger Culkin(shabby cabby) to take the fall so she can hook up with Vincent Harris (the guy whose wife was murdered).
In basic thrillers each scene should have you wondering what will happen next.
In this film, you wonder when it will end as each scene is sooooooo boring.
Alice Parker (Emmanuelle Beart) has the emotional range of a piece of toast.
Harvey Keitel needed some fast bucks for rent so he signed on as the
cab driver and a chance for a sex scene (two) with Beart. She has one
look trough out the entire film. The film maker could have used a mannequin and saved a few bucks.
Keep your remote in a holster so you so you can fast draw for fast forward.
You will be using it a lot.
The writer needs a course in screen writing. Or watch Breaking Bad for
basic screen writing, where each scene keeps you anticipating the next scene.
Not praying for a quick ending.
A Crime should have been directed by Michael Bay and made into a 10 minute film. This movie has more in common with Plan 9, than Clouzot.
