Ben Zambo reviews new film American Animals from Bart Layton (director of excellent documentary 'The Imposter'). The film follows the story of a heist of the rarest and most valuable books from the Transylvania University library. Playing with the form, Layton blends recreations of the crime with interviews with the actual culprits to help make sense of how the plot was conceived, and where things went wrong.
