A very artsy independent movie that is lacking. Not bad, but seems to go nowhere most of the time. I say C
"When you need me to do something, you ask, I assume this is how this works." After a man called "William" (Franco) get caught lifting a stranger's cell phone, he gets recruited by the local mob boss (Lucas). While being asked to do simple little jobs "William" meets a beautiful woman, and his life changes. Going in I was expecting more of a gangster movie then this. Most of the movie consists of "William" walking around to voice over. This is a very, very slow moving movie, that in a few places seems to go nowhere. It is not a bad movie, but it has the feel of a foreign/art house type movie, and most people are not into this type of thing. If you are looking for an absolutely independent movie with big actors this is what you are looking for. If you want a great gangster movie full of action, this is not it. I would call it a little like "Public Enemies" without all the action sequences. Not that bad, not that good. I give it a C.
Would I watch again? - I don't think I will
