    There's a lot of hate for John Herzfeld's 2 Days in the Valley, and there's a lot of hate for his 15 Minutes, but I liked both. So sue me. Like the previous film (which gave Charlize Theron her first speaking part, and she seems to repay a favor here by appearing in a bit part), 15 Minutes is a caustic crime comedy with lots of plot threads tying themselves up in a knot by the end, and filled with big stars, some before they were stars (like Vera Farmiga). As the title suggests, it's about fame in the television era. Two Eastern European scumbags start filming their crimes so they can become famous, while on their trail are a slick celebrity cop (Robert DeNiro) and a fire marshal of the edge (Edward Burns) - I would basically watch a bunch of movies about the latter - are on their trail. There are of course the journalists chasing the story, questions of ethics addressed and unaddressed (leaving some for the audience), and charred-black comedy (given the savagery of the crimes). Some plot points are predictable, but for the most part, it's a wild ride and you don't know where you're going to get off. Unexpectedly entertaining. 1 week 1 day ago

    Anyone spot a pre-fame appearance by Anton Yelchin?

    Terrible film though.
