My Quick Way Out

Slick has a posse.

My Quick Way Out [Miguel Albaladejo, Spain, 115 min.]

He's a cool criminal, a thief who drives getaway like Steve McQueen; he's smooth with the ladies and has a foxy girl, he sports a bitchin' denim jacket and never looks unruffled. He's got all that and he's not even 11. I hate him! Based on the real life of Juan Carlos 'Slick' Delgado, a juvenile delinquent so young he made the hoods in Brick look like old men. Set in Spain in the late 70's, early 80's its got period vibe, enhanced by a funky, jazz soundtrack and a judicious use of feathered hair. Its got robberies, shootouts, car chases, drug abuse, a few good laughs and a bedroom scene that would make Nabokov smile. Is there any reason not to see this picture? No. No, there isn't.
