The usual rare stuff
16 June 2013 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

A William Berke's movie is always worth catching and watching for any one searching for rare stuff, no matter the story.

The perfect example here with this little comedy crime programmer, that you may forget faster than the viewing itself. The tale of a locksmith hired to help the government purchasing some secret documents from a spy ring. Nothing more, I will forget it very fast. I watched it like a cow seeing a train passing by. But I did not expect much more from Billy Berke. I follow all films from him since a while now. Mostly lost stuff. The perfect example of the director with no ambition at all.

For rare stuff searchers, rare movies diggers only.
