Small Crimes is a sharp, short slice of noir based on David Zeltserman’s classic cult novel. A low-key, quirky crime film that is packed with great nuanced performances. Tightly directed with a gripping screenplay that smartly straddles the razors edge of noir and absurdity. Rich characters with a marvellously self-deluded and engaging protagonist. Small Crimes is brilliant, black comedy of errors that ticked all the boxes for me. I loved it.
I saw this gem on the telly the other day and good stuff it is, too. I’d never heard of it before.
There’s a ropey version of the film on You Tube but you’re better off watching the trailer to get a taste and then getting a proper copy.
