Gimme the Loot

81 minutes 2012

Small but bursting with energy, this indie comedy follows a pair of teenage taggers from the Bronx over two days as they hustle for the $500 they need to realize their dream of spray-painting the giant apple at Citi Field. Writer-director Adam Leon brings wit and genuine suspense to the various scenes of haggling, scamming, and petty theft. The colorful characters vary in age and class, though to Leon's credit he doesn't make a big deal of this; the movie is endearingly relaxed about the homogeneity of modern New York, while its feistiness and street-level detail evoke such Depression-era comedies as Raoul Walsh's Me and My Gal and Roy Del Ruth's Taxi!
