Gimmie the Loot is a new independent film about two young graffiti writers living in the Bronx who have a goal to bomb the Mets baseball apple and become the most famous writers in New York. The story focuses on their relationship and adventure to accomplish this almost impossible mission. When viewing the trailer it was hard not to clench our teeth and have the feeling that this is yet another attempt at trying to portray graffiti in particular way. Then you see all the reviews by renowned critics and the awards given and it makes you wonder. Should I go see this?
Acclaimed film critic, Rogert Ebert whose reviews are usually on point had this to say, “This is a simple, meandering, slice-of-life indie film that feels more authentic than most "gritty" New York films with infinitely larger budgets. It's funny as hell, sometimes too self-consciously "indie" — but it leaves us with a final shot as perfect as anything I've seen to close a movie in quite some time.”
