Quotes

[first lines]
Chaplin: So what do you think, Joe?
Joe Denton: [scoffs] I don't know. I dont think thats for me to say. A second chance? I mean, it's a nice idea, but...
Chaplin: But? How do you feel?
Joe Denton: Feel? I feel that I was a nightmare. I made terrible choices. I drove my family away. I... I hurt people. I didn't mean to, but there it is. And for all that... there's a hole inside me now. It hurts. I carry it.

Engaging but not quite what I was expecting
30 April 2017 | by lauraj515See all my reviews

I enjoyed Small Crimes and would recommend it with two caveats. Based on the trailers for the film and even the beginning of the film, I expected there to be more dark humor (of the absurd variety). Like 'how can this guy have SO much bad luck'. It very quickly turns away from this direction. Also, there are a lot of players, and the film takes very little time to help the viewer understand each players roles. That being said, you definitely get the gist well enough, and it certainly keeps you intrigued enough to want to see the whole thing through.
