A frustrated artist decides to go along with his friend's crazy get-rich-quick scheme in this tale of crime and friendship. Tired of his boring day job as a bank teller, twenty-something Desmond (Andrew Keegan) agrees to take part in a wild plot conceived by his roommate Gideon (John Krasinski) to rob the bank where Desmond works. There's just one problem: Gideon bases his plan on all the bank robber films he's ever seen.

A New Wave turns out to be a movie that never really knows where it's going, or why.
It loses its way somewhere along the line and only finds it again in the last twenty minutes.
Extras on the disc include deleted scenes, outtakes, and a music video, along with trailers for this movie and others.
Instructive, but for reasons its makers won't like: it shows the difference that a good script and capable cinematography can make, as this film, sadly, has neither.
I hereby declare a moratorium on Reservoir Dogs references, explicit or implied, in all movies. Forever.
It's a minor film; one that doesn't embarrass itself even after it stumbles.
