    'Gimme the Loot'. Three likeable leads including the city of New York, which is very much a character in its own right.

    "Gimme the Loot" starts with Sophia(Tashiana Washington) and Malcolm(Ty Hickson) pocketing as many cans of spray paint as they can handle from a hardware store, with Champion(Meeko) driving the getaway car. Their streak of success continues with their tagging a roof with their handles. But then are angry to find the following morning that a competing crew has painted over it. In order to make a name for themselves and to get revenge against them and Mets fans everywhere, Sophia proposes tagging the giant apple in Citi Field which rises every time the Mets hit a home run. And Malcolm has a contact who can let them in. But that's going to take $500 which they don't currently have. So, Sophia goes to collect an unpaid debt while Malcolm goes to see his employer. "Gimme the Loot" is a funny, vibrant and fresh caper comedy. As this was probably filmed on a limited budget, first time writer-director Adam Leon makes the most of it by showing quite the talent for composing shots. That especially extends to depicting fast-paced New York City where even the largest dreams are possible(although maybe not a large soda in the near future) but don't try to lose sight of what is closest to you. That's true even in a divided city, just not evenly so, as there is some mix between the classes, especially on the subway, Sophia and Malcolm's favorite mode of transportation. And with all of the corporate graffiti we have to deal with every day, what's wrong with a little personal expression? Just don't mind the petty larceny, and enjoy the rocking cool soundtrack.
