It's 1983 Los Angeles - beautiful girls, luxurious mansions, glamorous parties and Eddie Dodson, a very hip, very charismatic dealer of high-end antique furniture for the rich and famous. When Eddie meets the cool and aloof Pauline, the attraction is instant and the two live out each other's fast-paced fantasies. That is until Eddie's high-rolling life catches up with him and loan sharks start knocking on his door. To pay off his debts, Eddie and Pauline begin a spree of bank robberies across LA, charming tellers at over 60 banks to hand over the cash. Now the lovers are not only on the run from loan sharks but also have the police hot on their trail. Written by Anonymous

NO SPOILERS - Beautiful Cast Carries the Show
31 December 2014 | by knoxiiiSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie for a number of reasons. The cast had some of my favorites with Patrica Arquette (True Romance), Chloe Sevigny, Vinessa Shaw & a relative newcomer, Isabel Lucas. Isabel was so gorgeous in her role, I found myself asking the age old question, "Who's that girl?". The male lead was a slime ball with good intentions, and he was based on a true character, a biography of sorts.

A cool aspect of the movie is the countdown from 10 to 1 splashed across the screen between vignettes. It is a single story but this effect builds intensity & suspense. The supporting cast was woman after woman, all beautiful. One tip I will gladly share is to turn the volume up because the male lead is consistently mumbling. It could for a number of reasons (to look cool?), but none justified it.

It was a most entertaining movie to be sure. I rate it 7/10 stars because it was interesting which made it engaging which made it memorable. It was an exciting biopic, allowing the viewer to live vicariously through the characters.
