Strong Narrative Work Told Through Sharp Noir Lens
randemsefowt | Brooklyn, New York | 03/29/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Checked out Crime Fiction this weekend. Top notch. I'm rough
on film, particularly indie cinema -- which of course, is the
only hope for eventually making a buck while maintaining some
semblance of soul, sanity & dignity for the American
filmmaker. Love the scene with Cooper's disembodied voice
insisting upon his identity to the radio jock from the
frontier cloud cover. Hell of a closing, that Cooper-jock rant,
seems to make the culminating point with haunting clarity.

Hilarious. The reality refracted into infinity bit via the
pursuit of fictional fortune -- well-done. The denouement:
perfectly mad-cap (what the hell is the Lauren character
muttering while deconstructing "Marilyn" on the porch? I've
watched the scene four times now, & can only make out what
sounds like "pi intitum." Her turn away from the camera
doesn't help). About three-quarters of the way through the
film, my wife says this: "he's good." I think she was talking
about Eliotâ(tm)s acting, as the flick wasn't exactly her cup of
decorous tea."
Interesting witty journey between art and reality

""Crime Fiction" is an interesting and tricky exploration of the blurred distinction between art and reality. A little "Momento" a little "Coen Brothers" all results in an intriguing story that leaves the viewer seeking the equilibrium of trying to grasp whether the horrifying story was being unveiled in the literary imagination of the would-be author or motivated by the same author to create fodder for his next work. It was like looking into a double mirror with endless reflections. Most impressive was the tight direction of Will Slocombe who has an eye and imagination that keeps the film flowing. The angles, the view points and the work of this promising director comfortably holds the hand of the audience through this perverse journey."

"I loved this film. It's really smart and even though it is shot on a low budget, you can hardly tell. Really clever script, kept me watching the whole way. You don't need bucks to make a great thriller!!!
Crime & Creation

"This film is Tarrantino after reading Derrida, Kaufman under the Gargoyle's loom, Jarmuch tripping on that middle city ice. Paglia in a hot red dress? A trippy, witty cinematic romp, the work is entertaining as all get-out, even while leaving one with varied wild fodder to ponder at its closing. There's certainly a good deal to dig in this Crime Fiction."
