Art meets action is a inspired, twisted rage of a film
13 August 1999 | by Mr.Flick-2See all my reviews

Jimmy Zip just won "Best Feature shot for under 1 million dollars" at the Hollywood Film Festival and was viewed there. This film, as of August 1999, is not in general or video release. But, heads up, studio executives, this could be the sleeper hit of 1999/2000. Language is a bit rough but characters are strong and commanding. Well acted. Story involves a 16 year old pyromaniac who teams with a sculturer to confront the heavies- drug dealers with no scruples (is there any other kind?) . Hats off to writer/director Robert McGinley - strong talent. I also thought the editing was very good, something one never notices until you reflect on it a day or two later. I went back to my credit book and looked it up. The editor is named Howard Flaer. I hope some studio gets their act together and releases this. Good stuff.
