Guide Review - Slim Susie
No one in this town is normal: not the corrupt police officer or the mild mannered video clerk. And certainly not Grits, the heroin addict movie buff who befriends a despairing Susie in the supermarket. As in David Lynch's "Twin Peaks," everyone is a freak.
"Slim Susie" is a skillful mix of genres: teen comedy and hipster crime. Starting from the end and looping back to the beginning, Ulf Malmros's film keeps your attention with suprise after suprise.
