Director Bart Layton leverages his history with documentaries in American Animals, a bold feature debut about four privileged real-life college friends who rely on their knowledge of movies to plan and execute a rare book heist. With a unique style that overlays interviews of the actual subjects into the narrative, this exhilarating crime drama is notable in how it depicts differing perspectives of how the events unfolded. Aaron sat down with Bart to discuss why he is fascinated with stranger-than-fiction tales, what it was like using the real life heist participants in this film, and what one film that impacted him emotionally was.
