Storyline

An ex-cop supervises the destruction of corporate bonds redeemed by a New Jersey bank. He plans to steal small amounts of the paper from each shipment without raising suspicion and have a small- time fence from his old neighborhood find a buyer for the stolen bonds. The local mob boss, angry because he is not cut in on the deal, has the 'fence' brutally murdered. He orders his hitman to eliminate the out-of-town buyers and find the 'inside' man. Tom is abducted by the buyers and persuaded to pull off a large scale theft of bonds. He asks help from another ex-cop, his former rookie partner. Tom is killed in a botched exchange and Jimmy and Tom's daughter, DIANE agree to complete the deal and get the men responsible for Tom's death. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

[first lines]
Jimmy Vero: [voiceover] My dad always used to say things like "I wonder what's around that corner" or "Hey Jimmy, what d'ya think's at the end of that road?". Yeah, when I was a kid people used to talk like that, used to say those kinds of things, er, just everyday expressions they used. They never really asked themselves, "What's at the end of the road?". When I was a kid I figured people just didn't worry about those things and that made me sad I guess... still does.

Creativity Is Dominant In A Promising First Feature.

Tom Coletti (Frank Vincent), after losing his career as a police detective, as well as his marriage, due to alcoholism has defeated that demon and is employed supervising the shredding of corporate bonds issued on a New Jersey bank, but when Tom becomes a victim of temptation he removes some of the negotiable issues to sell and becomes trapped between purchasing gangsters to whom he turns, and a local syndicate boss resentful that such a lucrative transaction has not been offered to him. This low budget production, originally titled PAPERBLOOD, is the first effort from director Phil Gallo, also responsible for much of its script, editing, and scoring, and despite the typical visual characteristics stemming from an original 16mm. print, it is an encouraging debut for Gallo, who takes risks throughout by shifting prominence of his characters, employing frequent closeups of the New York based cast, frequently utilizing naturalistic dialogue, while even including a touch of Magical Realism for a characterization propelled plot wherein back stories have true importance, and where a perception of intensity provided by all engaged moderates the melodramatic effects of some scenes.
