Cop Car

Two dumbass runaways happen upon a cop car and decide to take it on a joy ride.  What they don't know (aside from everything apparently) is that the car belongs to a cop who's into some bad $#@%.  This dark indie from Sundance is a bit too slow and lacks a beginning and an ending, yet I still kinda liked it.  It's saved by good performances from Kevin Bacon, Shea Wigham, and Camryn Manheim, a short run time, and its pure indie spirit.

Fun Fact:  Director Jon Watts parlayed this into directing the next Spider-Man reboot.  Not sure how I feel about that.  He's got a good eye for performance and cinematography, but seems a bit weak on storytelling.

Now in limited release in theaters and also on Video on Demand.

Grade: B

Who is this movie for?  It's only 87 minutes and you can watch it at home, so if you love the Sundance fare, go for it.
