Synopsis by Mark Deming
A framework of a standard crime drama gets turned on its head in the independent comedy/drama Snapped. Billy (Johnny Zander) swipes a bag of money from a diner in New York City and heads to East Hampton with the loot. Bob (Seymour Cassel), the owner of the cash in question, follows close behind, giving rather slow chase. Once Billy arrives, he meets his girlfriend Tara (Gaby Hoffman), a photographer who specialized in pictures of road kill. Billy, however, has some competition from Shane (David Wheir), a clerk at a photo shop who admirers her work. Snapped was shown as part of the 1999 Los Angeles Independent Film Festival.
