The Crash (Jekyll Island) Reviews

January 16, 2017
Several respectable actors offer dicey performances here, but Rappaport's screenplay is the real villain, expecting thin references to real-world financial peril to paper over gaping holes in credibility and plain-old drama.

What is The Crash about? First off, it's about Mr. Rappaport's ability to get his film produced, and hats off to him for that, since it couldn't have made much sense on paper and hasn't grown in coherence on screen.
