Killing Zoe

A crew of punk robbers burst into a Paris bank, terrorize dozens of workers, and then spend half an hour cracking the safe. (Do they think the cops won’t show up?) The idiocy of the plot is the tip-off that writer-director Roger Avary is really just interested in random displays of nihilistic decadence (e.g., heroin shooting, prostitute bashing, lotsa blood). As the reluctant safecracker, Eric Stoltz acts like an addled preppy. As his psycho partner, Jean-Hugues Anglade offers a Gallic version of Gary Oldman’s specialty-wildly ”intense” overacting as the New Grunge Method.
