Mob hit-man with a month to live absconds with $4 million of mob money
18 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Confessions of a Hit-man" develops a fascinating mood as hit-man James Remar, faced with death in a month due to an inoperable brain tumor, grabs $4 million of mob money and ends up being driven instead to Vegas. A large part of the movie is this trip through Death Valley, being driven by a chauffeur in a stretch Caddy. There are great settings that the photography picks up beautifully. They pick up a blonde along the way who adds interest. The story is what is called "existential". This is almost a desert noir, even if it ends up in Vegas. Remar has always made an impression on me. I think it was his bad guy roles in "48 Hours" and "The Cotton Club".

Part of the movie's charm is that at first we do not know what to make of the hit-man Bruno Serrano (James Remar). The same is true of his chauffeur (Michael Wright) and the young woman (Emily Longstreth) they rescue from a disabled car. We learn about them as we go through their behavior and experiences. It's not a story in which everything that happens connects to an overall plot moving toward a climax connected to the preceding events. Each event is more or less a vignette that sheds light on the people but maintains a mystery about them. The trio face various different hostile or disruptive forces along the way, but without making the movie into a single-minded story of pursuit. The story is really about what a man feels and thinks who has been a mob hit-man and now has only a short time to live.
