Really fun little noir that points its proverbial gun back and forth, over and over, straight through to its final frame. Blackmailing a bank manager to rob their own bank is such a delicious premise for a crime movie. And at under 70 minutes you just can’t go wrong here.

I couldn't help myself. I'm going to be watching this again in a week or two for my podcast, but when it popped up as the first thing on my Netflix last night, I had to watch it again for the 4th time.

One of the most solid, exciting movies of 2017. A descent through Dante's Inferno complete with lighting that gets pop-tartier the deeper we go. At every turn the movie presents our characters with the most interesting challenges they could possibly face, all at an incredibly swift, yet even pace. I was sucked into this very quickly and it never let up its grip until the end credits, which suddenly moved me in a way I was not anticipating.
