Gimme the Loot (2012)
Writer/Director: Adam Leon
Stars: Tashiana Washington, Ty Hickson, Meeko, Sam Soghor, Adam Metzger, Greyson Cruz
A couple of New York would-be graffiti artists (Tashiana Washington and Ty Hickson) need $500 in order to pull off a big scheme that will expose their tag to the entire city.
We follow them as they attempt to get the money by hook or by crook, getting a complete portrait of their lives and their environment in the process. This indie film meanders a bit but is often very funny and quite good. The two lead actors are terrific. What passes as a big dream for their characters makes everything feel a little squalid and sad, but their essential goodness and their concern for each other shine through all, giving us hope that they will dream better dreams later.
