Description

“A terrific movie, as well as the birth of an artist.” (The New Yorker)

“Had you asked me on my 16th birthday if I’d ever rob a bank, I would have replied no. And yet, the robbery occurred eight weeks later.” —filmmaker Darius Clark Monroe

Here’s something new: an examination of a bank robbery made by one of the perpetrators himself. With reenactments and remarkably frank interviews with those involved, Monroe dissects his path from happy child to convicted felon. Executive-produced by Spike Lee and a hit on the festival circuit, Evolution of a Criminal is a conversation starter on race, class, education, and the prison system. Darius Clark Monroe. 2014. 83 m. NR. USA. The Film Collaborative.
