Creative Loafing Atlanta | FLICKS | KISS KISS BANG BANG
“The foundation of American cinema is crime. One of film history’s most important early films, Edwin S. Porter’s 1903 silent The Great Train Robbery, was a crime story featuring the adrenaline rush of a robber pointing his gun directly at the audience. The taste for criminal mayhem hasn’t abated since. The High Museum celebrates the vicarious pleasures of grifters and stickup men in its series Thieves Like Us June 4-June 25. The very title references our alliance with the cinematic criminal class.”
Doubt I’ll get to see many, if any, of these films, but I would love to.
