Killing Zoe (1994)

Remake RESERVOIR DOGS as a French art film and you're halfway to KILLING
ZOE, writer/director Roger Avary's slow-moving story of a failed
Bastille Day bank robbery.  Eric Stoltz stars as an American in Paris
who gets in *way* over his head when hooks up with a band of nihilistic
bank robbers.  He's the safecracker who's blissful unaware that the bank
job is a botch job from the word go.

Though intriguing on all fronts, the film is paced at half the speed of
PULP FICTION, which Avary co-wrote with Quentin Tarantino.  In English
and French.  (Rated "R"/96 min.)

Grade: B-
