Twisty & Fun
18 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

If Quentin Tarantino and David Lynch had made a movie together, it might have looked like "Cool Crime". In a nutshell, the film was about an Italian immigrant (David Ackert) who arrives in Los Angeles to be reunited his beloved uncle Bruce (Robert Miano). He discovers that Bruce has since made a name for himself as a local pimp and is now in a body bag after getting gunned down by a corrupt cop (Robert Cicchini). But just as Nino is getting ready to pack up and head back to the old country, Bruce's ghost appears in Shakespearian fashion with the classic "avenge my death" plea. Nino's a good boy so he does as he's told, but he learns quickly that he doesn't have the stomach for murder. There are a lot of darkly funny moments along the way, and a twisty plot that often feels weird and random but which ultimately pays off. It occasionally suffers from being weird just for the heck of it, but the cinematography is richly colorful and Ari Barak makes a smooth and sexy villain as Billardo. Sometimes the Nino storyline loses steam, but David Ackert keeps things moving with good comic timing and sensitive believability.
