Critic Reviews for Steal Me
Steal Me is a beautifully realized small film of understated power.
It's not really original stuff, and there are few genuine surprises, but Painter skillfully layers visual details and off-the-cuff dialogue into a smart, condescension-free piece on small towns and the complicated lives they contain.
Everything about Steal Me, the new feature from the writer and director Melissa Painter, feels dangerously overripe.
Drifter comes to small town, gets all the ladies hot. But it's not the steamy, literate Picnic, starring William Holden - instead it's the pretentious Steal Me, an artily photographed, puzzlingly acted indie.
Solid performances can't save Melissa Painter's pretentious teen drama Steal Me, which plays like a cross between Dangerous Skin (without the gay sex) and Picnic (without the production values or credible situations).
Steal Me has at least one indie-film cliché too many.
Audience Reviews for Steal Me
A classic case of overreaching, Steal Me boasts unorthodox camera angles, dramatic shifts in its palette and a generally adventurous visual style. What it lacks is believable dialogue, credible relationships and a serious foundation for its overripe psychology.
Very very slow moving and downright boring. The main character is shallow and unappealing it makes the film very hard to get involved in. I didn't care what happened to anyone in the film. This is a good film to watch if you have trouble sleeping.
