Drama



The protagonists of Andre Leon's film about New York graffiti artists, Malcolm and Sofia, spend a couple of days lying, cheating and stealing to friends, associates and whoever they can get money from in order to reach their goal. Gimme the Loot succeeds at being adorably amoral: It's hard for me to imagine responsible-adult audiences (especially around here) rooting for the two leads—and, yet, this movie's very entertaining. For his very low-budget (we're talking about $200,000 here) debut, Leon makes a spirited teen comedy with predominantly minority characters, which is damn near amazing in itself.
