Writer/director Matthew Gentile announces his presence as a capable filmmaker with a gritty true crime thriller that takes no prisoners.
If casting is everything then Gentile proves the theorem.
Tom Pelphrey confirms his status as an actor of substance, behind his impressive turn in "Ozark," as Jason Brown, a con man with a taste for robbery and murder.
"American Murderer" may not be the most inventive title for a movie that necessarily pulls up its stakes a denouement too soon, but it delivers the goods with efficiency and style.
For her part, Jacki Weaver tears a phone book in half as our freaky con man's disillusioned mother Jeanne. This phenomenal scenes blows the doors off the movie.
The ever stalwart Ryan Phillippe keeps the heat on high in his search for a culprit who's smarter than his actions tell.
Here is a workmanlike thriller to break out the popcorn for all your entertainment needs.
Hollywood should take notice, Matthew Gentile is a filmmaking force to be reckoned with.
Solid supporting performances from Idina Menzel, Paul Schneider, Moises Arias, and Kevin Corrigan put the icing on the cake.
Rated R. 102 mins.
