A well crafted surprise twist film noir, 3 November 2006
Author: gavinsword from United States

I was surprised this didn't get better reviews. I thought the movie was clever and original. Throughout, the story line kept me guessing and some scenes are totally, unexpectedly hilarious. Paul Sorvino is particularly interesting to watch and all of the characters are, well characters. Dialogue/script is tight and well conceived. Most of the movie is set at a collection agency office (polite persistence) with two detectives interrogating employees into the night - makes you feel like your there, sipping the coffee with them. If you pay close attention, you can figure out who is guilty but it's NOT obvious...enjoy.
