A heightened homage to the City of Angels, Electric Slide riffs on the real-life story of Eddie Dodson, the notorious "Gentleman Bank Robber." With a fondness for velvet, Stetsons, and blow, Dodson managed to lure money from mesmerized female tellers at over 60 banks during an epic spree in the 1980s. Jim Sturgess gives a uniquely affected performance as the urbane antique dealer and hobbyist in this dark, hyper-stylized crime tale. Gathering a stellar supporting cast including Chloe Sevigny, Patricia Arquette, and Vinessa Shaw, director Tristan Patterson crafts a singular vision of ‘80s Los Angeles. With dazzling outfits and cinematography that drips with sensuality, it's hard not to get taken just like those bank tellers.
