Storyline

Fritz Brown is an ex-LAPD, recovering alcoholic who now splits his time repossessing cars for a used car lot and staffing his one-man private detective agency. When a filthy caddie named Freddy "Fat Dog" Baker wanders into Fritz's office one day, flashing a wad of cash, Fritz is hired to follow Fat Dog's kid sister Jane, who is holed up with a Beverly Hills sugar daddy named Sol Kupferman. Kupferman is a 70 year-old bag man for the mob, and Fat Dog claims that "Solly K" is up to something evil that may harm Jane. The trail leads Fritz to an encounter with his dark past in the person of Haywood Cathcart, current head of LAPD internal affairs and the person who kicked Fritz off the police force. But what is Cathcart doing in business with a mobster? And why is Jane shacked up with a man old enough to be her grandfather? Fritz starts asking some questions, and the answers are all bad news. Fritz finds himself back on Haywood Cathcart's short list, and as the bodies start to pile up ... Written by Anonymous

A classic film noir not to be missed.
18 June 1999 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I recently saw Brown's Requiem at a film festival and was completely impressed. Being a fan of film noir, I really believe that director Jason Freeland knows his material well. He was able to use the classic narrative style of the detective movie in a modern way. I was also happy to see Michael Rooker in a leading role again. He is an important actor that I would like to see more of. If you see this movie playing in the theatre near you, go see it!
