Kane (2023)

Who said you need a long run time to make a kick ass film? Running a compact 80 plus minutes this fast moving crime thriller grabs you by the throat and drags you along.

The plot of the film has  Benny trying to navigate an escalating gang war. Things are complicated by the fact that his boss has 23 personalities the worst of which is the titled Kane.

To be honest I’m not certain that the personality thing is really necessary to the story, since the film is so well done on every level, that it ends up being more a selling point to get people to look at the film, rather than something just vital to the story. As it is this is a super little crime tale with bad people doing bad things.

Moving at the the speed of the wind KANE grabs us thanks to a great script full of great characters and great dialog. We are hooked before things get tense because the script by director Blair Moore is so well written we have to see what is going happen next. I started the film figuring that I’d watch the screener I was given for a little bit before going to bed, and instead ended up watching the film from start to finish, not taking any notes because I was too involved with what I was seeing on the screen.

The lack of details in this piece is the result of not taking notes, and not wanting to over think this small gem. I just enjoyed the hell out of the film and I don’t want to ruin it by over thinking it. This is the best kind of movie, one that entertains you and makes you want to see it again with friends and family.

This is a great film that you need to see.
