Noirish '90s flick about a man looking for adventure
21 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This low budget flick is very much a product of the time, the aesthetic and detached subject matter scream early '90s. The protagonist is someone most of us can relate to, a film buff who is disappointed in how small a character he is in his own life. He really just wants to have some sort of adventure as his daydreams and movie-going just aren't cutting it anymore so he manages to find some shady characters and put a contract out on his own life. His plan is to be ready for the hit-man and kill him first. If this plan sounds pretty ill-considered (note that even he doesn't seem to have any clear conception of what might happen after the showdown with the assassin) that's because it is and naturally it all quickly goes awry. He gets deeper and deeper into trouble and eventually realizes that his obsession with violent adventure has caused him to miss out on a shot at real (albeit utterly conventional) happiness with an attractive acquaintance. Naturally for this type of film Finding Interest is actually a bit twistier than I'm willing to talk about here. It gets less believable as it goes but poignancy is added by a coincidence in relationships. Basically, this is a fun, noirish film which addresses the way people interact with fiction in a fairly unique fashion.
