Steckler an awkward gumshoe in diverting trash.
7 March 2004 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

You really need to hand it to Mr. Steckler...the man could turn a thin dime into a thoroughly watchable motion picture. In BODY FEVER, Steckler stars opposite his gorgeous wife Carolyn Brandt as a private eye hired to find a female drug-runner who has disappeared with a massive heroin inventory. In truth, she is in hiding from the cartel after being robbed of the stash. Steckler hunts her down through a dot-to-dot network of various underworld miscreants, and the search leads him straight to her bed.

Odd, colorfully written characters played with surprising motivation help make this noir-inspired film worth a look, though viewers preferring a mainstream Hollywood polish will find the grainy minimalism off-putting.

5/10
