As per the rules of the fest, I'm allowed one movie that I've seen before. For this year, I chose an old favorite that remains fond in my memory but I've been interested to revisit and see if it still holds up. This is a late 80s comedy heist starring Fred Gwynne, Lou Diamond Phillips, Ruben Blades, and Corbin Bernsen as bank robbers and Ed O'Neill and the crazy dude from River's Edge as cops on their trail. It's a small town heist filmed in Montana mixed with some nice twists and ticks all the things I want out of a heist movie. Plus it's a great artifact of the 80s where there's no nudity or violence but they threw a few "shits" and "fucks" in there... just because? It really shouldn't be rated R except kids porobably wouldn't be interested in watching it? Except this kid was. I saw this a bunch on rental, HBO, and whatever.
I'm happy to say that it still holds up! For me at least. Hard to tell honestly... I think it works but a heist comedy is kind of a weird tone but I think it's great.
And that's it. Another year down. I wish I could've hit another film or two but I'm out of time. Let's cap it at that.

Without this and FantasticFest, it sure looks like I don't watch movies anymore. May some day. Now it's back to HBO's Watchmen.
