I love it Dryly comic, arch, sleek, and suffused with mood-setting tracks by the likes of X and Depeche Mode, “Electric Slide” has some of the mordant absurdity of the novels of Bret Easton Ellis. Like its dim hero, it’s going nowhere, but traveling in style.
Great soundtrack. Was ok with me cause I used the movie as the video for the music.
It was just okay. Glamourizing the bank robberys without the plot going anywhere. Stale from beginning to end. Great cast though, but that's it.
The movie focus on more style vs. substance and not particularly well - could have been a great film noir but didn't - it's the worst but not the best either.
Interesting. Couldn't turn it off.
