While a repetitive hooker-killer eludes police, they feel the wrath of their chief, who gets heat from the mayor, fearing that his record against crime is in jeopardy in his simultaneous re-election campaign.
Writer and Director John Marino has crafted a powerful story where issues of morality and self-destruction and cycles of abuse play out in this extremely well acted film.
I recently rented the film "Menace" as well as another video, a big Hollywood blockbuster movie filled with name actors and a star director and once again, Hollywood spends millions of dollars getting the automobiles and haircuts right, but gets all of the feelings wrong. The film "Menace" impressed me, with its modest budget, filled with real people, real emotions and the end result delivers and impressive film. The ensemble cast includes Johnny Green, Alison Lohman, David Proval, Jan-Michael Vincent, Jonathan Avildsen and character actor veteran, Allen Garfield. The film "Menace" reminds me of the films I loved in the 70's where real intelligence, real wit, and real emotions are now replaced with over the top special effects that create no insight into the human condition. Most of the Hollywood films that we see today, the filmmaker doesn't tell you or even show you about the human condition, but about what the filmmaker knows about film. Not what the filmmaker knows about life. Writer and Director John Marino has crafted a powerful story where issues of morality and self-destruction and cycles of abuse play out in this extremely well acted film.
