An underrated Independent
14 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

I saw The Paint Job on HBO at two in the morning and was both pleased and surprised. I liked the film; it was alternately absurd, funny, scary, and tender. Also, rather than being a mere exercise in absurdity (i.e Being John Malkovich), it was actually about something. What surprised me was that I never knew this film existed. I doubt if it was ever released and wonder why, when it is clearly more surprising, original and well-performed than most of the movies I pay $9 to see.
