Excellent James Ellroy-inspired short film
15 June 2002 | by (Ohio, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

A righteous rendition of a pivotal chapter of a James Ellroy (of "L.A. Confidential" fame) novel narrated by a serial killer.

Filmed in moody black and white, a trio of cops confront an axe murderer about his gruesome slaying of a young couple.

Walter Coppage, riveting as the lead cop, deserves an A-list role.

Race Owen, as the dissembling dismemberer, is disarmingly sympathetic.

Director/writer Mitch Brian delivers a spot-on vision of author Ellroy's unique world and distinctive narrative voice. Brian's take on Ellroy's twisted, killer-narrated novel leaves one hoping that the producers of the just-announced, planned adaptation of "Killer on the Road" - the novel from which this gem was gleaned - turn to Brian for a full length treatment.

(P.S. Watch for a brief, powerful cameo by author Ellroy, portraying a cop who delivers the film's pay-off line.)
