Charismatic actors in an understated drama/thriller
1 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How We Got Away With It speaks volumes about this understated thriller/drama set between old friends getting together for their ritual "good time" weekend. The performers are all very charismatic and extremely well cast, and equally lead well under the directing of Jon Lindstrom. McCaleb Burnett as the lead holds the torch as the protagonist, responsible for a lot of things darker then just making sure his friends are having fun. His plan nearly falls apart when a cop, Jon Lindstrom, is on to him. The color work on the film works very well in leading the viewer into a new set of emotions, and setting the tone for the scenes. The story is so subtle, and rather than spoon-feeding the audience, it requires the viewer to stay engaged in order to full be rewarded at the end by understanding the full scope of the story. This is a breath of fresh air, when most films do all the work and the audience is required to do nothing. I am also glad to see this film take risks in regards to male nudity. This is a very good debut feature film, and I am excited to see what else Jon Lindstrom will be coming up with next.
