Criminals was the first feature in which
I played the lead.  I lost 20 pounds to
play the role, mostly muscle, to give my
character the drawn-out, weak feel and
look of Johnny, an alcoholic loser. We
actually shot this film while driving
cross-country from Brooklyn to Las
Vegas.

It's a modern Film Noir/Black Comedy,
which many
reviewers compared to the
early work of director Jim Jarmusch.

Shot in 1994 but not exhibited until
1997, Criminals was finally released on
DVD and Video-On-Demand in May,
2011.

Britta Couris as Lizzie...or in this
case...Electro-Lady!!
It's a love story, a heist caper and a
black comedy all rolled into one.
...They might not be
the best criminals in
the world.

Before Soderbergh took on
"Ocean's 11, 12, 13", etc., there was
a quirkier Vegas heist
movie...Criminals.
