Movie Info

Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe, 21, One Day) plays Eddie Dodson, a Melrose Avenue antiques dealer who decided to become a bank robber. Dodson drove to the banks in a black '63 Ford Galaxy LTD. He dressed up like an elegant criminal. He made mix tapes to listen to on his getaways. And in only nine months, Eddie robbed 64 banks - more than anyone has robbed before or since. Taking its aesthetic cues from Eddie Dodson and the unique moment he occupied in L.A.'s countercultural history, director Tristan Patterson has forgone the style of straight‐ahead biopics to create a New Wave dream of a romantic outlaw seeking self‐reinvention and immortality in paradise.

Critic Reviews for Electric Slide

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

  • "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.

    Apr 1, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Jim Sturgess as Dodson is meant to be a charismatic, effete dandy. He merely comes off creepy. Vinessa Shaw, Chloë Sevigny, and Patricia Arquette are utterly wasted in nothing parts.

  • Electric Slide turns a pulpy story into a turgid, humorless, undernourished slog.

    Apr 2, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • "Electric Slide" becomes a vacuous, numbed viewing experience that's more interested in the positioning of lights than the decay of its characters.

    Apr 1, 2015 | Rating: D | Full Review…
  • Self-consciously arty dreck of the most agonizing variety.

    Apr 1, 2015 | Rating: 0.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Like the characters, the film's exterior flash can't conceal a glaring emptiness.
