Crazy Diamond
27 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Crazy Diamond seemed stretched at its one hour length not helped by its pedestrian pace and a thin story. Not even Steve Buscemi could save this.

The setting is a near future where food and vegetable instantly rot, there is coastal erosion at an extreme pace and there are artificial robots who look like real life humans known as Jack and Jill.

Buscemi plays Ed, he lives with his wife Sally. Ed is dreaming of adventure in the high seas to escape his house that is on the verge of falling down to the sea. He works in a scientific laboratory and likes to listen to vinyl records.

Things change when he meets a Jill who is dressed like a femme fatale. She is selling double indemnity life assurance and wants regenerative medicine as her life force is dying. Ed is swayed by her, Sally is worried about him and Jill attracts danger.

In some ways this had a similar theme to Blade Runner, a replicant that wants to extend its life.
