Perhaps I'm engaging in a bit of grade inflation by giving this movie 10 stars but I wanted to wash away the acrid venom I had in my last review. Imagine how different our current movie landscape would be if instead of the last ten comic book movies we had ten times that many gems like Small Town Crimes.Whatever was wrong with this film-and there wasn't much wrong-it wasn't due to the fact that they didn't have any huge movie stars. Good directors can get good performances out of just about anyone, and these guys are good directors.Well acted and well paced at every step, this <more>
One of the very Best Movies I've seen in a long time!! (by rleary1)
Is it just me or does any movie with actor Robert Forster in ever a bad Movie? Something about underrated Forster regardless if he's only in a movie for 5, 10 or 20 minutes makes it that much better! I bet Tarantino loves this movie! Kind of a 'film noir' movie about redemption with a great cast! I can't recommend it enough!
I thought this movie was brilliant (by kevinstone-793-173715)
I never leave movie reviews but you have to give credit when credit is due! When the movie started I wondered what I was watching because it seemed like it was going to be a very low budget film but this was an excellent movie! So glad I watched it!!
Almost turned it off in the first 60 seconds. Really glad I didn't. (by notfoundmachine)
Haven't made a movie review on here in years, but had to log in to post this. I didn't think this would be my kind of movie, but I loved it. Favourite movie in months. The slow pace picks up so slowly that before you know it you're watching an action movie. My impression at the end was that it was like watching a modern western - set in suburban life instead of a dusty saloon town.
Remarkable (by ljulien)
This movie was highly entertaining till this end, good plot and good flick, good acting all te way long, and also some really good sense of humor through this film noir story, which reminds me from some brittish crime movies like Guy Ritchies one's. I think it's fair to give it a 9 stars as it cuts though all those average thrillers we constantly got... well this one is a decent popcorn flick!
Great noir with a bit of dark humor (by abisio)
John Hawkes is not often found in principal roles; but this movie shows he is perfectly capable of carrying a movie even when he looks like a common person. Hawkes is Mike Kendall; a fired alcoholic ex cop trying to get back to the force or looking for a job both things he is not likely to succeed . He finds a moribund woman on the road; take her to the hospital but she dies. He decided to investigate the crime as a way to do something or perhaps clean himself. Things get complicated; because nothing is really as simple as it looks and many people has skeletons in the closet. Add to the <more>
equation a couple of ruthless killers trying to clean up the mess and two pissed of characters a grandfather and a pimp; each one for different reasons and Kendall's own stupidly.While the movie takes a few minutes time to get going; once it is the steam is never lost. The ironic end; is perfectly acceptable.In brief: a very good independent thriller that deserves a public.
ONe of the Best Original Action-Drama movies (by arnuld-mizong)
This is ARNULD again, here to to lift-up your spirits : I watched it because I thought it was a Budget-Action movie. Well, it was not. This movie was original, had mature acting, original shooting scenes, original dialogues & quite engaging . You become a part of the story. They do not make these kinds of movies anymore . It was serious but not dark, it had funny moments but those were not so funny that they will kill the drama or seriousness of the theme. I consider it one of my favorites. If you are happy then go watch it to become happier. If you are serious then go watch it to admire <more>
the theme. Just do not miss it if you like action movies with emotional drama mixed into them.
This was surprisingly good and well acted. I enjoyed it.
A Fun Throwback to Classic Mysteries (by hollandmctyeire)
Small Town Crime starts off simply enough. Its plot is very reminiscent of old gumshoe classic such as The Long Goodbye and the Maltese Falcon. You've got your hard-drinking private detective who stumbles onto a dead body and becomes involved with a variety of shady characters. As all of these movies go, one dead body leads to a web of murder and deceit that happens to be an incredibly satisfying mystery.The film is anchored by an incredibly strong central performance by John Hawkes, who effortlessly injects humanity into his flawed protagonist. He plays the character as someone who is <more>
simultaneously sleazy and likable. He attempts to right the wrongs of his past, but can't help but lie at every turn. Hawkes' performance is incredibly gripping and creates a character that we want to see uncover the mystery.The tone of the film is a mixture of dark comedy and brutal violence. The film handles this very well, however the sudden shifts may be off-putting to some viewers. While the violence is shocking, it adds to the tension of the action scenes and only enhances what was already a great film.For viewers looking for a throwback to classic, detective stories then Small Town Crime should be on your Netflix queue. While the graphic violence comes as a surprise, the central performances build a cast of interesting characters who we invest in. The film moves along at a brisk pace and ends with a satisfying conclusion.
