Storyline

Set in 1950s Los Angeles, Richard Hudson (Warburton) is a shrewd car dealer who moves from San Francisco and sets up a used-car dealership. Tiring of this job, he turns the lot over to an assistant and starts writing his first movie, The Man Who Got Away. It turns out to be an uncommercial picture chronicling the story of a truck driver who goes berserk, runs over a little girl and dies fending off a platoon of police officers. In making his film, Richard enlists the help of his father-in-law, Leo (Paul Malevich), a washed-up former film director whose notable possession is a Rouault painting of a clown. Through Leo, Richard pitches his idea to the Man (Ernie Vincent), the chief executive of Mammoth Pictures who green-lights the project. Conflict inevitably arises when Richard's obsession for making the movie his way clashes with the Man. Other kooky characters include Richard's mother (Lynette Bennett), a former ballerina who lures her hirsute lug of a son into a comic pas de deux ; ... Written by Anonymous

Compelling dark humor
13 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i was lucky enough to be watching one of the independent film channels when this movie was being shown for about a month straight. I must have watched it at least four times. Patrick Warburton is the master of deadpan. Just seeing his name made me watch. It is definitely one of the most compelling movies to be seen if you like dark humor. I can't recall whether it was in black and white, but if that is what you get a chance to see don't miss out thinking you need color. some of the best entertainment unfortunately is not in color. I have been waiting for at least six months to see this on TV again but to no avail. once you see it, you can't get it out of your head. It's that unusual and good.
