When I think about a crime drama with machine gun toting gangsters, I usually don't think about comedy and laughs, but this movie, in my humble opinion, is a crime comedy. I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would, and it made for a wonderful way to invest 53 minutes of my day. Maybe it is just the mood I am in right now, or maybe it is the movie itself . . . I'm just not sure. You see, as I write this there is a wild, wet and windy storm going on outside. It is very early in the morning and Hurricane Sandy is pummeling the country with her mighty fury. Many millions along the east coast are without electricity, and I understand that coastal flooding is at historic levels. The Appalachian mountains are getting record snowfalls, and here in the Cleveland Ohio area it has been raining for four days already, and the rain system that was just leaving us has been pushed back to us along with the edge of Sandy, which is a huge Nor'easter storm now. So it is raining, blowing and storming all around me. I made the trip to the office where I have a day job, and before my regular day begins, I watch, review and upload another movie to my passion web site. Half of the building I am in is without power, but where I am at there is still power (fingers crossed). I cannot connect to the internet right now, so this movie and review will be uploaded sometime later. But all that said, I have enjoyed the heck out of this movie. Maybe it is escape-ism . . . maybe with the storm blasting all around me I am enjoying a look at 1935 California sunshine, gangsters, good guys and a plot that just strikes me as fun . . . or maybe I am just weird.
An independent movie company made this movie, and it is about . . . an independent movie company in Hollywood that is secretly smuggling Asians into the country instead of making movies. How cool! And the author and director of this movie, Crane Wilbur, is also one of the bad guys - one of the fake movie company producers. That just strikes my funny bone in the right place this morning. In any case, I don't have any white kernel popcorn handy, but I still enjoyed this gangster vs G-man movie from the wild days of 1935 Hollywood.
