Here's an Indie film to take note of - GIMME THE LOOT (click for trailer), although it got by me during the Philadelphia Film Festival in October. Now we get a second chance to check it out as it's opening on Friday (4/5) Ritz at the Bourse.
GIMME THE LOOT is an IFC/Sundance Selects film by a director who graduated from University of Pennsylvania - Adam Leon.
Leon's film was an official selection at CANNES, a winner at SXSW and screened at New Directors/New Films festival to packed houses.
For the film, I knew we had to get that right, so we brought in a bunch of people to talk to us, in particular artist Greg Lamarche, who's sort of a legend. He taught the kids and me a lot about the culture and history, and how to actually do the graffiti itself." - Indiewire.com
