A teenager moves in with his bank-robbing uncles.

Unpleasant people being unpleasant to each other. It's well made and fairly original - I just don't like this kind of movie (the humorless, cynical crime film) enough to like one that's anything less than amazing. You get a sense of some of these guys being really interesting characters, but they never really come through clearly. No one has any background or motivation beyond what's necessary for the plot. The protagonist, meanwhile, is hardly even a character at all. If the movie didn't start with a voice-over by him, you probably couldn't tell he's supposed to be the protagonist.
