It's 1915. Former gunslinger Django is hired as a movie consultant in Hollywood. There he runs afoul of racketeers, forcing him to flee to a town policed by violent radicals who take influence from Griffith's "Birth of a Nation".
"Paint Job" is a wry,black comedy about a painter who pursues his boss's wife.his boss as it turns out is a serial killer in their small town.this movie is amusing at times,always entertaining and always bizarre the film is populated with an assortment of quirky(to say the least)characters.in fact there is no one in the film who can be described as normal.Wil Patton is Wesley,the painter who falls for his boss's wife.Bebe Neuwirth plays the wife,and Robert Pastorelli plays the boss/serial killer.the movie is subtle in its humour,more ironic than anything,and absurd at times.i particularly liked Neuwirth's performance as the somewhat dim wife,although all the performances were good.i did not have any expectations going in,so was pleasantly surprised at how effective and entertaining the film was.if you expect to be rolling around in hysterics,look elsewhere.otherwise,prepare to be amused and entertained. a strong 6/10
