Storyline

Emile Brockton enjoys TV, chicken pot pies, and...well, not much else. His life has become a meaningless procession of banal activities that prompt him to spice things up the only way he can devise: by killing himself. However, the road to suicide is filled with distractions, and these create the ultimate conundrum for him. It turns out there's quite a market for autobiographical snuff flicks, and Emile's new acquaintance from work (who is a few tacos shy of a combo plate) decides to document his demise.

weaker then I expected based on the plot.
19 October 2000 | by (chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

The plot & idea were quite interesting and deserved a much more professional implementation. Both acting and directing seemed amateur at times.

I was disappointed that this supposedly independent film had very weak and quite Hollywood-style ending.
