Well Worth Seeing
18 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

The Paint Job is filled with surprises. Writer/Director Taav creates a sexual landscape so fraught with suspicion and confusion that no character, no matter how well-meaning, and no action, no matter how benign, can be taken a face value. This is a wonderfully written, visually imaginative independent film that is alternately quite funny and quite frightening. Will Patton and Bebe Neuwirth are excellent as the mismatched lovers ; Ted Levine, in an uncredited role, is riotous; and the final confrontation between Patton and his boss, Robert Pastorelli, is startling and original. See it if you haven't, and see it again if you have.
