Free Movie Friday: Indie crime flicks online
As more and more movies go up for free online, we've got the best of the best for you to check out. And this week, my personal favorite, Indie crime flicks. If you're in the mood for an over-the-top bank heist, start streaming these hot flicks and start your weekend off right.
Wild Seven: If you liked Ocean's Eleven, you'll love Wild Seven. Well, minus Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Matt Damon, but this is one smart crime drama that wasn't remade two times over. A career criminal, fresh out of prison, rounds up a gang to target an easy bank. But when a group of high-rolling 20-somethings begin to target the same bank to fuel their drug, booze, and women lifestyle, they threaten to thwart the plan for everyone. Starring Robert Loggia, Robert Forster, and Richard Roundtree. The film is streaming for free on Babelgum.
Kwik Stop was nominated for an Indie Spirit Award when it came out for its daring male lead Michael Gilio. There's nothing I love more than a good con-artist story. A young grifter, Lucky goes on a westward road trip, with the goal of knocking off a few gas stations on the way. When he meets another pretty young drifter, she convinces him to take her along for the ride. It's a perfect little American film both stylistically and emotionally engaging. Now on Hulu.
Under the City, based on true events, is a gritty Chicago thriller shot for a mere $60,000. When an ex-con attempts to rebuild his life and family, he is thrown headfirst into Chicago's underbelly sex trade. He is forced to kidnap a little girl in order to save his own. Redemption ain't free in this modern film noir. Check it out on Fancast.
