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.
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.
