✔       Introduction



Hello Friends, I hope you are doing fine and are having a good time on bitlanders. Today I have come up again with my new blog with the title of "Hollywood Movie Review - American Animals". Friends, this blog is about a recently released Hollywood Crime and Drama Genres film "American Animals".  The story of this movie revolves around four young boys who were mainly American University students but wanted to do something special in their lives as they thought their life was very boring.  They plan to steal very precious literature books in order to make millions of dollars in a short span of time.  This movie was a United Kingdom and the United States of America co-production.  The movie was directed by Bart Layton, whereas it was produced by Derrin Schlesinger and Mary Jane Skalski.  The screen play for the movie was also written by Bart Layton and the movie was produced under the supervision of Film4 Productions, a British Film production company.

You’d call this heist film un-fucking-believable, except that American Animals really is rooted in fact – that is, whenever the British documentarian Bart Layton, in a mightily impressive narrative feature debut, doesn’t mess around too much. “This is not based on a true story,” reads a title card at the start … before the words “not based on” slowly vanish from the screen.

Both the students start paper work on their plan, Warren Lipka also gets some useful price information from the black market where they plan to sell those books.  They come to know that these books are very expensive in the black market; therefore, they become too much excited and want to do it as soon as possible out of thrill.  They soon come to know that they will need the help of more people as two of them would not be enough to execute this plan.  They enlist their other companions who are Erik Borsuk and Chas Allen.

The team attempts their plan and two of them enter the library and overpower and tie up the librarian.  They take possession of the books they wanted but when they exit, they drop two books out of four.  When they reach their place, they come to know that they have missed on more precious books because they panicked at the time of their exit .  However, nothing could be done then as it was too late by then to give their plan another chance.  The real drama starts after their heist finished as they could not control their behavior and excitement and they also failed to sell the books in the auction house on the very same day as they were advised to visit next day. Soon, they are arrested by the Police and they are sent behind bars for seven years.  Their excitement results in frustration and anxiety as they cause a great trouble for their family members who never expected this thing from them.  Nevertheless, after completing the sentences, they all come out of the jail and start living a normal life and choose some respectable professions for themselves for livelihood.
