Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
Michael Moriarty shines in this gritty, low-budget drama about Herbert G. Rucker, a popular, but egoistical cop who shoots and kills a black purse snatcher in a deserted alley and an ambitious college film student (Eric Laneuville) witnesses it from his bedroom window. He decides to film and record his every day life to see what kind of pathetic human being he really is. The more his crime is exposed, the more unstable he gets.
The supporting cast also has good chemistry in the film: Earl Hindman (Wilson from Home Improvement) as Rucker's drunken, laid- back pal Garrity, Anthony Charnota as vicious pool shark Sal and Paul Sorvino in a small part as the student's instructor who lends him a helping hand into exposing Rucker.
No DVD or Blu-Ray release as of yet, but a good quality print is available from the Thorn EMI label.
