Audience Reviews for Scarfies (Crime 101)
Crime 101 is an independent film from New Zealand made on the cheap and even cutting cost Crime 101 is able to deliver suspense and tension by the bundle. Though the acting is a bit amateurish it in no way takes away from the tight writing and intense direction by Robert Sarkies. Crime 101 is one of those films that no one has ever heard of but can be a great hit when shown to the right audience.
Scarfies is a typical New Zealand comedy, filled with bad acting, sex, weed and swearing. I don't even know who thought it was a good idea to ruin the reputation of New Zealand with this film, the plot is ridiculously stupid and antisocial. The only redemption of the film is the nice filming and editing techniques.
a unique film. part morality play, part dark humor, part romance. if you dug that narrative arc of Breaking Bad where they debate whether to kill the guy in their basement, you'll dig this too. and for you cool indie rock kids....the clean make an appearance in the film at a club playing their song ,"Tally Ho!".
