"10 minutes won't change my life," Colin (David Lyons) quips at a juncture during "Swerve," and of course, those words are soon prophetic. The Aussie thriller written and directed by Craig Lahiff is set in a small outback town called Neverest (get it?) for a reason: over the next 86 minutes, there will be few moments of pause for any of the characters ensnared in this film noir-style tale, but unfortunately it eventually comes at the expense of an already stretched thin suspension of disbelief.

The best film noirs aren't just about the twisted schemes and desires of the characters trying to pull one over, but they instead dig into what drives our behavior and ambitions. And the upcoming Aussie thriller "Swerve" seems to be reaching for those heights.

A suitcase full of money, a crooked cop, a femme fatale and plans gone wrong... It sounds like something we've seen before, but with the usually solid Jason Clarke ("Lawless," "Zero Dark Thirty," "The Great Gatsby," "White House Down") in the lead, "Swerve" is one we'll definitely be checking out.
