The operation failed but the patient survived.
15 September 2013 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

I'm partial to Dutch Leonard movies, "Jackie Brown/Rum Punch" and "Get Shorty" were terrific. His stories are character based and his plots are simply threads that allow his weird and wild characters to be revealed. I liked this picture on the TIFF big screen last night. but the Jackie and Shorty films accomplished this with superior casting, while "Life of Crime" is more "Big Bounce" than these two. The bad guys are well formed, Ordell, Louie & Richard are all well portrayed. And Tim Robbins reproduces well the object of his personal disaffection for the past few decades - the ugly, lying hypocritical capitalist. But Anniston is a vaporous Mickey. She seems unaffected by any events surrounding her, not her husband's drunkenness and philandering, nor his hiding of vast sums of money or even his plans to divorce her. If she's a victim of traumatic stress, she doesn't even pull this off. Every hair on her head stays in place even after being kidnapped and almost raped. So she is the weak link in an otherwise watchable kidnapping caper pic.
