Indie Gems: Small Crimes

That has to be a new record.

Joe Denton (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is a former cop who is released from prison after a six year sentence for attempted murder. His folks (Robert Forster and Jacki Weaver) don't really know what to make of him. While he wants to do right by everyone so he can see his daughters again, he gets sucked right back into the same mess by his former partner Dan. (Gary Cole)

Movies like this are fairly predictable, but that's okay. I like seeing Nikolaj in a role like this after watching him as Jaime Lannister for so many years. The rest of the cast was good too. Even though you had an idea of what was going to happen, I was interested through out and still managed to be surprised by a few events.

Macon Blair, who also has a small and very memorable part in this is proving to be a really interesting writer. I can't wait to see what he does next.

Grade: B

Watched on: Netflix Instant

Memorable Quote: "It hurts. I carry it." - Joe (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau)

    1. This one kind of came out of nowhere. It's hard for Netflix to advertise.

  3. Did Macon Blair actually write the script for this film?
