Black wig, hot shapely red lips, deep blue eye shadow, spider butt crack tattoo....and you got a movie..
Yeah, not too bad a B movie. Think of those 70's film shot on film, which have become classic, with worse direction.
I like the nice B movie plot, but the script tried to get a little Christopher Nolan on us. Trust Nolan to pull off time disjunction and such. This flick had way too many forward / backward time movements. And fading in and out all the time slowed the pacing to a crawl. Director should have tried innovative cutting, such as time cuts, object cuts, character cuts or content cuts to pass or change time.
Outside of the movie being too Nolanish for no apparent reason...who doesn't like a dual personality chick jerking several guys around on a string for her own gain. One hot, one plain Jane. You pick the one you hook up with, take out for a drink(s) and then back to your place or motel room. And of course and evening with Madsen,Burson,Jones, is entertaining. Burson could have befitted with more stylish wardrobe changes, tho.
I liked Joe Jones as the Irish mob guy. Kinda reminded me of Danny Greene and Kill the Irishman. (a movie I liked a lot, btw).
The plot is a little involved, but basically a dual personality chick, rips off a blonde hair fey bank guy, an ordinary lame Joe, and a mobster for a couple of hundred grand. The guys go after her to try and retrieve the money and maybe some retribution.
Dirty Little Trick was way to videoey, and sound had a video tinny quality. One of several problems in trying to make a real movie was, "let's shoot it on video, because it's cheap" mentality. Plus it had the sanitized Canadian movie feel in the staging of some scenes.
But when your stuck home with a 15" snow storm, like we just had here this evening of 12/26/12 in Indiana, it is not a bad flick and a fair B movie to watch. The special features section was worthless as the video makers probably did that in an hour.
Several weak scenes, but several strong ones averaged out to a evening better than the horrible cable alternatives, like Storage Wars, Kardashians, the commercial ridden AMC, SyFy ridiculous Ghost series, and the FX movie channel.
