What a treat to be part of the very first audience to see a brand-new movie debuting in Cannes called "Middlemen" -- starring Luke Wilson, Giovanni Ribisi, Jacinda Barrett, James Caan, to name a few of the ensemble, directed by George Gallo, produced by Chris Mallick.
Think: "Goodfellas" meets "Oceans 11" only quicker, sharper and with performances that any actor should be proud of. Giovanni Ribisi, in particular is a standout, playing a strung out loser who essentially is responsible for "pay as you play" internet porn.
Based on a true story, "Middlemen" is non-stop fun, while probing deep into the minds and souls, really, of a group of individuals thrust together all in the name of greed.
Not to be missed.
