Here's my review of THE WANNABE starring Vincent Piazza, Patricia Arquette, Nick Sandow, Michael Imperioli, Domenick Lombardozzi, and David Zayas Very little time is spent with these characters being away from one another and yet their reactions and emotions between them tell us their differences and what they want respectfully, without this time to explore them individually.While The Wannabe may not hold qualities such as the grandiose of predominant mobster classics, the characters of Thomas and Rose are intriguing and memorable: reminiscent of Bonnie and Clyde crossed with Romeo and Juliet. Tribeca Review: The Wannabe, The Driftless Area, & Meadowland. The mix of callous humor and romantic doom doesn't always hold up, but in its best moments, "The Wannabe" finds real spikiness in the pitfalls of anti-hero worship.

Film Review: ‘The Wannabe’ Patricia Arquette acts up a storm but cannot save this pale Bonnie-and-Clyde true story from bogging down in repetition. Based partially on true events, the film tells the story of Thomas, a man fascinated with gangsters and the ideology behind them, and his girlfriend/wife Rose as they meddle with the New York Mafia.The film, set in 1992, introduces Thomas as a wide-eyed young man intensely following the trial of John Gotti, the boss of the Gambino crime family of New York. The Wannabe is too derivative for any insight, offering little more than tired tropes and bad accents.
