mild black comedy, better than some, not as good as others
13 June 2002 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

quirky little movie about a motel owner who sets up a camcorder in one of his rooms, and ends up recording a murder. i rented this movie to see david patrick kelly, who plays the motel owner's friend/tenant. kelly, as always, is great to watch. (this is one of his few normal nice-guy roles). maybe this film will get a second wind on dvd someday...worth watching, if you can find a copy.
