        The idea of this film was the kicker here and while it keeps the film from being a generic melodrama, it can't survive the simplified storyline. I found this to be one of the better twists on a normal story, this is exactly why indie cinema exists. If I had the opportunity to support this film at the cinema, I wouldn't blink twice and the filmmakers involved have a bright future. The classic in too deep storyline grows a little tiresome, the good natured drug baron is overdone and filmmakers need to shake things up here. Blumhouse wisely got behind this film, indie filmmakers need more producers for these lower end films. 11-11-2017.

        A nerd who likes to perform magic tricks ALSO happens to be the friendly neighborhood drug dealer and thief in this story where credibility is stretched even while the presentation is decently okey-dokey. J.D.Dillard writes and directs and might well be going places in the future, but this is and shows all the signs of a starting effort. Can't wait for the next go round though.

        Almost everything that happens in Sleight made me think "Oh, this is just like where this happens in that other, better, movie". But the fact that it's original IP overall is refreshing, and just because someone else did it better, doesn't mean Sleight doesn't do it very well.

        I thought this was very enjoyable. The characters were believable and you actually started sympathising for them. This is worth checking out if you want something to watch.
