He Glows In The Dark
4 May 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Paul Popowich stars in the title role as Silver Man, a young man who is a violinist and a street performer who has some kind of hereditary affliction which causes his skin to be a glowing silver. A handy guy to have around when you're lost at night.

He falls for Audrey Lapke who is the girl next door who unfortunately comes with a psychotic hood of a boyfriend in Derek Hamilton. She'd like to break away, but can't. And she also is keeping company with accountant Joe Pantoliano who has some secrets of his own.

Add to this is Eugene Levy who is a religious Jew and a gangster at the same time. He just wants to make sure his young son has a bar mitzvah that's unsoiled by the family business. He reminded me so much of Malachy McCourt from The Brink's Job who was into all kinds of stealing, but was downright insistent that Peter Falk not use bad language in his home.

In the end it's like that song lyric from That's Entertainment "where a ghost and a prince meet and everyone ends in mince meat".

The basic weakness of Silver Man is Audrey Lapke whose character made no sense at all. In fact this girl just wants to have it all and she'd really like to have all three guys on a string, she likes it that way. Not one of them can see that.

Still all the players give it a good go and if you've been to Toronto, you'll recognize a lot of the locations. Silver Man is an unpretentious little film which could have used some tightening in the story.
