"Exhilarating… it’s equally surprising as an action film and character portrait."—Village Voice

A champion marathoner leads a double life as an adrenaline-fueled serial bank robber, sprinting between fixes (and away from police cavalcades) as many as three times a day. Based on a true story, this Austrian thriller is a lean, visceral study of pathological compulsion, featuring a riveting central performance by Andreas Lust (Revanche). (97 mins., 35mm)
