Don't Try This at Home submitted by Meginator on July 19, 2018, 4:49pm This film is a very interesting and carefully framed dramatization of a real book theft that took place at Transylvania University in the early 2000s, and it is better classified as a true crime story, with all that implies, than a heist film. Though the film itself is fairly sympathetic to the perpetrators, a group of malcontent college students, its most effective moments evoke significant physical discomfort as characters and viewers alike directly confront the brutal, violent aspects of their plan. Interviews with the actual thieves lend an additional layer of rumination as they confront the truths they discovered about themselves. The film itself is excellently constructed, with superb performances, an interesting (and self-aware) blend of facts and stretched truths, and a carefully curated soundtrack, and it leaves a lasting impression with room for a lot of interpretation. It's thought-provoking and raw and arty and not quite like anything I've seen before, without becoming too fond of itself or its intentions.
