Welcome to Thursday Movie Picks Hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, This week's theme is movies where crime goes awry. I committed a crime once that went awry, I tried to steal a lollipop and got caught and then banned from my local corner shop.
Note that there may be spoilers for The Killing
The first film is Green Room where a guy murders his girlfriend after hearing her desire to leave, it was about to be quickly sweeped under the carpet until the band playing for the night stumble into the room and see the dead body. Naturally, they have to dealt with also. Tense and exciting the film features a menacing performance from Patrick Stewart and a great performance from the late Anton Yelchin.
This stunning exercise in technical brilliance ensures that this German thriller stands above the rest. Shot in one continuous take, Victoria is a perfect example of the power than real time filmmaking can have. The film was disqualified from winning Best Foreign Picture because of the high amount of English dialogue, still I doubt it would have won.
The Killing is one of Stanley Kubrick's lesser known films, but still an excellent film. The heist itself is a work of art...that is until it starts raining money right at the very end.
