    Crime Wave

    ★★★★½

    Stellar front-to-back dissection of ex-con stigma that doesn't waste time in letting us know that their life is a troubled one, implying that for all the effort it takes for someone like Steve to combat unwanted visitors, prying eyes and hurdling of hardship he'd be better off a ward of the state.

As Campos' first larger-budget ensemble outing, there's indeed the aforementioned messiness but this rests firmly in his wheelhouse as something obviously dour and godless, and to be honest, he kinda knocks it outta the park. If you wanna watch pretty people looking ugly-ish and absolutely not practice what…
