Storyline

Alex is the film student forced by his college professor to stop making Jackie Chan "homage" films and make "something from the heart" in order to graduate. Lars is the painting student and Alex's roommate who is looking for a way to become a tortured artist... as long as he can keep his BMW and American Express Gold Card. Together, they meet Blue, who has recently moved into their apartment building. After discovering that she's a "hit woman," Alex appeals to her senses as a film fan and persuades her to let him film a documentary on her last "hit." Heading towards the inevitability of the "hit" in Miami, Alex interviews Blue. Through his B&W lens he finds out why she does what she does, why she's afraid to fly, and about the foster father that sexually abused her until she ran away at the age of eleven. As Alex becomes increasingly blinded by his obsession with capturing his documentary he risks everything and everyone, by convincing Blue to travel to New Orleans to find her foster ...

Jennifer Rubin's Role
16 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jennifer Rubin is one of the actresses everyone has seen. In this she shows she can really act. The plot is realatively simple: a failing film student must make one good film to graduate. He meets his next door neighbor who turns out to be a hit woman. (Rubin) Hey, here's an idea: let's make a documentary of your next hit.

And that's what they set out to do. Film her next "road" "kill".

This is not a trashy film. It's well done. Entertaining. Often funny. A coming of age in extreme circumstances film.

Consider that this independent film, with a too cute title, ends up with a rating above 7.0 on IMDb. If you can find the DVD it's well worth your invested time.

And Jennifer can act!
