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 ...

I like the movie although I had wish there was more angst for Alex(Erik). I also thought they would involve the loan sharks more. Over all I really enjoyed the movie I think because of Erik Palladino and am looking for him in more movies. He's an excellent actor and Road Kill was no exception. Nice job Erik!!!!Keep up the good work.
