ONE YEAR IN A LIFE OF CRIME

1989 / 55min / Digital

DIRECTOR: JON ALPERT

Q&A with Jon Alpert, Josh Safdie, and Robert Pattinson.

"Alpert’s HBO character studies of low-life crime are like primary source documents to devour and pull from endlessly. His work on Junkie Junior or as a producer on Dope Sick Love was monumental to our film Heaven Knows What. I know Rob found Life of Crime and Lock-Up: The Prisoners of Riker’s Island to be a treasure-trove. When we took Rob to NYC jails (in character) he felt like he was ushered into one of Alpert’s films."
