7:44 pm
american animals. let's start there. that to me seems like a peculiar conceit as well — trying to steal some books from a library? it's a very strange story. based on a true story of this university heist from kentucky in 2004, a group of hapless young men decided they were going to steal these rare books from a university library. and the film basically centres on the central introverted character spencer, played by barry keoghan, and warren, played by evan peters, who is described as being the spice, the person who brings the element of chaos. what happens is we see these youngsters who are basically dissolute, who feel that their lives aren't going anywhere, they feel they are not fulfilling their potential, suddenly decide that they're going to pull off a heist, despite the fact that they have absolutely no idea how to do it and there being very little chance of being able to pull it off. here's a clip. the cameras aren't cameras — they're motion detectors. we're going to e—mail the library
