Scavenger hunt #57
Task 29: The defining list of the generation, Watch a IMDB top 250, if you're like me and have seen all 250 pick something you think should be on it.

A really excellent crime film thats stylish yet still authentic. I really liked how the story is presented in little sections, and I liked how almost any main character can die in any second of the movie. I also really liked the directing and use of handheld and shakey-cam, as it really puts you into the world of the film and makes you experience what the characters are experiencing, and I was engaged in the film throughout the whole runtime. My only gripe with the film is that the editing sometimes takes me out of the movie, and their are a few transitions and edits here and there that feel out of place and kind of dated. But apart from that, fantastic film.
