We have arrived to one of my favorite movies of all time. This is special in every way because, even after knowing the twist at the end, you still feel that you should re-watch it over and over again. The top movie for the perfect crime list this year is:
Two friends escape from prison and decide to rob as many banks as they can on their way to Mexico. They hire one of their nephews to help them and on their way encounter a woman who, looking for her purpose in life, decides to join their team. The two friends both fall in love with her and this causes their last heist to go south.
Bob Dylan, Bonnie Tyler, Bonny Rice, Tanita Tikaram and U2. I was only ten when this movie came out and some of the classics it used were introduced to me here and they influenced my taste in music in the best way possible.
You might be wondering what could possible be the twist, and you'll be surprised, but there are more than one in this movie... first for the main characters, then the side characters and the wrap up of the story as a whole brings you something unexpected. I find this movie to be a cinema masterpiece and will lobby for more people to see it until my last breathe!
Just watch it :D This and any of the movies I have listed so far and trust that you won't be disappointed. This idea of trusting critics over seeing a movie baffles me to today... if I like that cast, the trailer, the story then I will watch it, even if it has a 3.4 or 6.5 rating on imdb. Movies are meant to entertain, tell stories, not to win awards... and the ones that do win awards are usually shit! At least in my opinion. If any of my reviews made you want to check out a movie then do not hesitate!
Until the next item on my list!
