Plot outline: When Eastern European criminals Oleg and Emil come to New York City to pick up their share of a heist score, Oleg steals a video camera and starts filming their activities, both legal and illegal. When they learn how the American media circus can make a remorseless killer look like the victim and make them rich, they target media-savvy NYPD Homicide Detective Eddie Flemming and media-naive FDNY Fire Marshal Jordy Warsaw, the cops investigating their murder and torching of their former criminal partner, filming everything to sell to the local tabloid TV show "Top Story." Summary written by Jeff Cross {blackjac_1998@yahoo.com}
Comment: 15 Minutes may be flawed at points and make it's point a tad too bold, but with such entertainment in it, it's very difficult to complain. This might not match the audacity of Natural Born Killers, but it does have extreme guts to spare. Oleg Taktarov and Karel Roden steal the show as two foreigners who figure out that they can do murders as long as they plead insanity and all. They also decide that they can make they're own movie, sell there murders to TV, etc. This often comes off as incredible, far-fetched and yet cynical satire that is powerful even if it's not new news. Robert De Niro also stars as a celebrity cop who with arsen cop Ed Burns investigate various murders by fire and lead up to the 2 maniacs. As compelling as any action film, as gritty as any satire, and while it isn't perfect, it comes close. Cameos include David Alan Grier, Kim Cattrall and Charlize Theron. One of the best recent satires and one of the better films of 2001. A
