Criminal Activities is an oddly humorous and fast-paced thriller which seeks to explore the world of organised crime. Four young men borrow a large sum of money from a local mob boss to invest in a no-brainer transaction. When the stock plummets, they find themselves left with no choice but to agree to a terrifying proposition. Although aesthetically bland and lacking any substantial female roles, the film taps into the darker side of male comradery and delights with a delicious twist.
Criminal Activities | Directed by Jackie Earle Haley (USA 2015) with Michael Pitt, John Travolta. Starts March 31.
