Weird ALERT! Not to Miss!
18 April 2004 | by (Casablanca) – See all my reviews

The Paint Job is not your average movie. In fact it's anything but ordinary. Will Patton stars as Wesley a painter who works for a man called Will in a small town. Without expecting it he falls in love with Margaret his boss's wife. Things get complicated as Will gets more and more suspicious of what's going on and Wesley discovers there may be something terribly wrong with Will and his disturbed mind.

All the actors perform brilliantly. Bebe Neuwirth is extremely beautiful and here very sexy as an unhappy housewife. Unfortunately she doesn't have as much screen time as she deserved which is a shame because she is a joy to watch.

Will Patton delivers as always a wonderful performance and Robert Pastorelli (RIP) is surprisingly menacing and weird creating tension and a creepy environment in all his scenes.

The script drags a little in the middle but still its filled with such weird and complex characters that a simple story grabs your attention and doesn't let go. The truth is everybody involved is a little disturbed and there's a bizarre feeling from start to finish that prevents you from taking your eyes away until the last frame.

Paint Job is something different. It's the kind of movie you sometimes want to see to escape the routine of Hollywood's blockbusters and cliché dramas.

I wont recommend it to everyone. It can be difficult to watch but still it's a funny and intriguing film.

I do think it lacks some sensuality which is a sin when you have Bebe Neuwirth on the cast but nothing is perfect.

See it and be surprised. I was.
