A sweet little film in which director Cory McAbee's children Willa (6 y.o.) and Johnny (2 y.o) play Crazy and Thief, two parent-less kids who have an urban adventure following star symbols they see in adverts and signs and products that seem to correlate to a star map Willa has drawn. They meet a one eyed man in a park who is referred to as the Cyclops and another man who is the Giant. He isn't particularly tall, but that's the point, to little kids any adult can seem like a giant, and any small object or situation can hold great importance and significance. McAbee has cited early Sesame Street episodes as an influence and that's clear. The children aren't given knowing, smart Alec lines to read - they are just very natural, sometimes not even making sense. They are oddly independent, existing in their own imaginary world. it's a short, film without a strong plot or any high drama, but it reminded me of what it was like to be a kid.
