After a bank heist that ended in a shoot-out and cost their partner's
(Nick Apostolides) life, Harry (Jonathan Thomson) and Mick (Dan Liebman)
hide out at a beach hotel in the middle of winter, where they are to meet
up with their boss Greyhurst (Bobby Kenney) - who just fails to show up.
But what's even worse is the papers they'd need for a clean escape out of
the country have gone missing as well. Instead, they find a tied up girl,
Sydney (Evalena Marie) in the trunk of the car. Not knowing what to do
with her, they decide to keep Syndey alive at least until they find out
more of their own present situation, and seeing she's at least somehow
linked to Greyhurst, she might be able to help. But things only get more
out of hands when one day while Harry and Mick are out, the loot from
their heist is stolen and they find Sydney rather violently tied up in the
wardrobe. Then their car is stolen. Later, all three start hallucinating,
only their hallucinations are exactly the same, which means there has to
be something going on playing against them, and before long Harry and Mick
suspect an inside job from either their employer or one of his underlings
- but this is about where reality seriously starts to crumble.
Among Them sure is an unusual movie: Starting out as rather regular
if poignant gangster fare, it spins a story that gets more and more
bizarre with every twist and turn, gradually steering into horror
territory and more and more resembling a surreal jigsaw puzzle with very
possibly no simple solution - and yet manages to not lose the audience in
the process, rather make them root for all three protagonists, no matter
how diverse their intentions and goals might be. And apart from pretty
excellent writing of course, a down-to-earth directorial effort really
helps keeping this together, as well as fresh and interesting. And of
course, solid performances by all involved don't hurt either and help make
this a pretty awesome and rather unique ride.
