Storyline

Three diamond heist thieves, Lester, Lydia and Vincent, come to the motel to split the stolen diamonds with master criminal Willie, who planned the heist. Upon reaching the motel, Lester finds out that one of the diamonds is missing. He accuses Vincent but Vincent denies that he knows nothing about the missing diamond. Lester ties him in a chair and tapes his mouth. He searches Vincent and goes to search Vincent's car. He threatens Vincent, as he couldn't find the diamond anywhere. Lydia also searches Vincent and finds the missing diamond on his shoe. She gives it to Lester. When Willie comes to the motel, he sees Vincent dead and Lydia tied on the floor. Lydia tells Willie that Lester killed Vincent, tied her, took the diamonds and left. Willie decides to use the restroom and discovers that Lydia lied to him. Written by Anonymous

Don't trust anyone... Life is full of UNCERTAINTY
28 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this film at the Las Vegas Independent Film Festival in the Student Film category.

Festival films are normally artsy-fartsy, but this film belongs to the "Hollywood" category. It was clean entertainment right from the beginning. The plot is about four people who are involved in a heist. The film shows only the aftermath of the heist. Even though this plot has been told many times, the way the story was told made it more interesting. The director definitely had some style. Non-linear approach and fast paced editing supported the story well. Actors did a decent job. The lead actor dialog delivery could have been better; luckily she didn't have that many lines.

The music lends the film the right ambiance. The film is mostly B&W, but there was a mix of certain colors (red & blue) at some places to establish a stylistic film noir works well.

My normal rating would have been 7/10. But this is a student film, almost made with no budget – one room, four actors and no other production values – and it still entertained the audience for fifteen minutes. So: 8/10.
