One of three films directed by Robert Altman which were first released in the year of 1987. The others were the tele-movie Basements (1987) and Altman's "Les Boréades" segment of Aria (1987). See more »
Altman really hit on a good thing with his short films written by Harold Pinter. The film effectively contrasts Conti's brilliant acting skills with the non-existent skills of John Travolta. Travolta's awful british accent is worth the price of admission alone! (I am sure this is all intentional - a real Altman touch) Travolta plays a hitman! And we all thought the Tarantino was the original one with that idea. A genius story that is excellently paced. For a great time, view this wonderful artistic piece.
