Autumn

Film

Time Out says

Inspired by the French gangster films of the 1960s, this self-conscious mood piece circles around a hit man (Lucas) who’s looking to go legit and run off with his childhood sweetheart (Jacob). The pair’s plans are derailed when they’re drawn into a convoluted plot involving a mysterious briefcase. Overly laden with ponderous flashbacks, Autumn also suffers from a hero who seems deliberately conceived as a cipher. American-born director Ra’up McGee has a feel for striking images and subtle repetitions, but the leaden pacing and dearth of humor ultimately make Autumn as forgettable as its oft-recycled title.
