Movie Info

How does a 16-year-old evolve into a bank robber? Darius Clark Monroe's Evolution of a Criminal brings something new to the world of film. In examining a bank robbery committed by Texas high-school students, Monroe's film interweaves suspenseful reenactment footage with candid interviews from people involved in every angle of the crime. We hear from participants, victims, family members, and law-enforcement officials, all very open in discussing how the crime impacted them at the time, and how they relate to it now. The twist? The filmmaker himself was one of the men involved in the robbery. (C) Official Site

  • Few documentaries are as personal as Darius Clark Monroe's moving "Evolution of a Criminal," in which the filmmaker turns his camera on himself and members of his family to retell a painful story.

  • Often-intriguing if not completely absorbing viewing.

  • Raising significant questions about the psychological effects of poverty on young children, this unsettlingly direct stab at atonement feels genuine.

    Oct 9, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Vital, thoughtful, and deeply personal, first-timer Darius Clark Monroe's autobiographical doc stands as a testament to the power of movies to stir empathy.

    Oct 7, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The film can certainly stand alone as well as a truly unique first person account of a situation that affects millions but is all too rarely spoken about, much less with such insight.
