How To Win Enemies (2015) New York Jewish Film Festival 2016

HOW TO WIN ENEMIES is one of those films you really can't talk about until you're talking to other people who've seen the film because the construction of the film is is one of those that twists on itself several times before you get to the ending which is in no way what you expected at the start. To be certain it's whimsical and enjoyable but not something I really can discuss.

I can tell you that the film involves an attorney named Lucas who meets a lovely young lady who spend the night and steals all his money. Not wanting to let go and knowing a thing or to because he reads mysteries he tries to get to the bottom of it all... From this point on you're on your own.

I will add that for the most part this is a really good little mystery/caper that only kind of weakens in the final minutes when it kind of rushes to a conclusion. Its an oddthing to do since the film takes its time to set everything up so the quick ending kind of disappoints.... but not much since this is a film I will happily watch again a few more times and hand off to friends once it hits DVD.


This film plays Thursday at Lincoln Center. For tickets and more information go here.
