This isn't really a think piece although describing its structure makes it sound like one. Both Keanu Reeves and James Caan's careers have been on life support for a while but they both had a lot to work with here and they came through. Vera Farminga is now at the top of my list of favorite actresses. She is one strong capable woman and that comes flying out of the screen.
The film which moves from one layer to the next, starting as an I-have-no-life-but-don't-know-it tragedy, to a theatrical drama which blossoms about half way through into a comedy which then plows into reality. But the plot is pretty simple: good guy decided to rob the bank he was unjustly sentenced to prison for. It's an interesting premise, but if that's all it had, it'd would only have been mediocre or average.
I wrote and thanked the theater here for showing it.
