One assumes that Henry (Keanu Reeves) has some kind of inner life. He seems to be a likable, easy-going fellow; it's just that he's a bit...inscrutable. Maybe it's his job. Working the graveyard shift night after night at a N.Y. Thruway tollbooth would put anybody in semi-comatose state. Nothing fazes the agreeable yet impassive Henry, one way or the other-although he does display a slight twitch when, one morning at breakfast, his wife (Judy Greer) broaches the subject of the couple having a child. Suddenly, we get the impression that Henry would prefer to be anywhere else but there, at that moment, having that particular conversation. What's going on? Is this a troubled marriage? Does he love his wife? Is this cipher of a man internally harboring primal doubts about life itself? Or...is he suffering in silence from a sudden attack of gas? There's really no way of discerning.

We never get a chance to find out exactly what Henry is contemplating, because that is precisely the moment that Fate intervenes. An old high school chum named Eddie Vibes (Fisher Stevens) unexpectedly shows up on his doorstep, with a drunken cohort in tow. Both men are dubiously outfitted for a game of baseball. Eddie wants to know if Henry can give them a ride to their "game". Nothing about this questionable early-morning scenario seems to raise any red flags for the ever-malleable Henry. Even Eddie's request to stop at the bank "on the way"-and to park the car out front and wait while his passengers go inside-fails to elicit the tiniest raised eyebrow from Henry. Needless to say, the heist goes awry, Henry's car stalls, his "friends" flee...and guess who ends up in stir?

Although he owes them squat, Henry doesn't rat out the real culprits and takes the fall, while his demeanor remains unchanged.

HENRY'S CRIME is a dark comedy that actually carries a fairly good afterburn. The story is solid, the characters are unusual, and the setting in Buffalo, NY is appropriately dark and dank. This is a tale of how people react to their own personalities, moving through the world seemingly oblivious to those around them, afraid to create dreams much less go after them.

Flatline Henry Torne (Keanu Reeves) works the night shift in a freeway tollbooth, quite alone, and seemingly undisturbed by his isolation. At dawn he goes home to his tiny house where he greets his wife, nurse Debbie (Judy Geer) who wants to talk about beginning a family but as usual things distract the couple's ability to have a conversation. Friends pick up Henry to have him replace a member of the neighborhood baseball team and Henry goes along (as he does with everything that comes his way) only to wind up as the driver of a getaway car for his 'teammates' as they pause to rob a bank. Henry is so loopy that he is not sure what happened and is arrested by the bank cop Frank (Bill Duke) and without much effort in protecting his innocence, Henry is convicted and imprisoned. There he meets Max Saltzman (James Caan) who loves being in the protection of prison (low goals in life). When Henry comes up for parole, Max wishes him luck in finding a dream (or waking up to life) and Henry wanders back to his home: Debbie has married worthless Joe (Danny Hoch) and is pregnant - and none of this seems to bother Henry either. Henry decides to return to the bank he was convicted of 'robbing' and is struck by a cellphone carrying driving actress Julie (Vera Farmiga). Henry has feelings (surprise!) for Julie, follows her into the theater next to the bank where Julie is rehearsing Chekhov's 'The Cherry Orchard'.

I found this gem by accident and am so happy I did! I am Keanu Reeves fan, but this movie also starred James Caan and Vera Farmiga. James Caan is one of the greatest actors of our times, and his performance in this film is on point. He plays his character is such a way that even though he is a career criminal, he is still like able and you find yourself rooting for him throughout the film. Vera Farming I recognized from the series Bates Motel. Her character is actually quite similar. She plays a somewhat self obsessed, shut off want to actress who won't let anyone or anything stand in her way. Henry, played by Keanu Reeves, plays a man who is so board and feels so ambivalent and trapped by his life that he would rather go to prison for a crime he didn't commit in hopes it will give him a fresh start, than defend himself when he could easily have gotten off. Once released from prison he discovered his "dream" and decides rob the bank he has already wrongly served time for robbing. Henry and Julie (the would be actress) meet in an unusual way and a very strange and unorthodox romance ensues. This film is worth a watch. The ending, while somewhat predictable, is satisfying and leaves you feeling good about the characters you have come to care about. You know they have all found what they needed, justice is served, and happiness is found.

This is a movie you can watch over and over again. The acting was great and the script was very creative. You can really analyze this film due to the different layers and meanings. You can see it as it is, that is take it literally, or you can see the symbolism in each character and situation. I also think this movie is very inspiring and motivates you to take charge of your life and know what you want in life.
