Downright Strange

Now here is one of the most unique films of 2018, both in the story itself and the way Bart Layton tells said story. The fact that they used the real life people for each of the four main characters to help propel the story forward in a documentary-style fashion is absolutely brilliant, and even hilarious at times. Unlike their real-life counterparts, these four actors seem to have a really great future, each having their own share of scenes to steal. Unsurprisingly, Barry Keoghan was the clear standpoint, constantly bordering the line of unsettlingly charismatic and offputting. Which, for a movie like this, is basically perfect. A certain part of me watching this kept going, are these kids complete idiots? Some of the things they decide to do and how they go about doing them are just mind-bendingly stupid, but the way these characters act create a definite believability in some regard. But undoubtedly, American Animals is one of the strangest and most interesting films of 2018.

true crime idiots

It's 2013. Spencer Reinhard (Barry Keoghan) is an aspiring artist from Lexington, Kentucky. His friend Warren Lipka (Evan Peters) is an uninspired athletic scholarship student. Spencer goes on a tour of the library at Transylvania University where he sees a valuable Audubon book. He tells Warren about the book who starts pushing to steal the relatively unguarded treasure. Warren becomes unstoppable in pushing the group to pull off the scheme inspired by various movies.

This true crime drama is enticing not for any belief that the co-conspirators would ever get away with the crime. There is a possibility that one of more of them would abandon the plans but these American idiots' faulty fates are never in doubt. The structure of using the 'real' people in this true crime drama is quite effective. It's so effective that I wouldn't mind it doing a Fargo. I really like the chemistry with the two leads. It's solid acting from these actors.

Kentucky Four

This is a true story which is re-enacted by actors but told documentary style by the real characters involved. Four college kids plan a robbery of rare books from Transylvania University in Lexington...and not too well. The characters were on the boring side. Dialogue likewise but you to sleep. And robberies that don't go that well, don't make great cinema. Rather than try to make this realistic, they should have added some Hollywood action/drama and maybe make one of the characters a girl...like a fitness instructor and race car driver.

Guide: F-word. No sex or nudity.
