Going Going Gone
27 April 2018 | by Braindead09See all my reviews

This one plays like an episode of White Collar meets Hustle set in the world of art forgery. The cast includes two alumni from the David Cronenberg Canadian back catalog in Allan Kolman (Shivers) and Samantha Eggar (The Brood). The plot isn't sophisticated and moves along at a reasonable. The Roger Vadim directed effort appears to have some print damage on the Amazon Prime screener, especially in the final third. I suspect the film suffered damage when some hack decided to censor Lloyd Bochner characters psychopathic behavior. The film features multiple shots featuring the now destroyed WTC in its use of New York City as a background location.

The film is no great shakes but an ok way to waste 90 minutes
