Shortly after taking a job processing obituaries, a young man becomes inadvertantly involved in the death of an old woman. Only when he reads about the accident in his own newspaper, days later, does he come to realize that he was a critical detail in the turn of events that led to her demise. After encountering another person who presumably goes missing, he is convinced that he has been wound into a plot for which he has been cast as an agent of Fate. Written by Otto Buj

Truly, one of the worst movies I have ever seen. The difference between this movie and one that is "so bad, it's good" is that those movies tend not to be pretentious. There is enough pretentiousness in this movie to last a lifetime, actually, I thought this movie would last a lifetime, although it was just one hour and seventeen minutes long. The rabbit suit, and the skeleton gloves were a nice touch, but not enough to to save it.

You should really listen to the commentary that comes with the movie. I thought he was going to bring his accountant online to discuss it. And then, he talks about aesthetics or something. I guess there is a lot of that there too. I especially liked the bowling ball, but I was disappointed that it didn't land on Tim's head. It would have made good slapstick.

In the back of my mind, I keep thinking of Mark Borchardt's movie "Coven". That was a far superior film, although I doubt you would have thought that the first time you saw "Coven". But this must be a better film, after all, he brings up a title block that references both Goddard and Cocteau in the same breath right in the movie.

When you have Netflix, it gives you a chance to check out ALL those titles they have available. I guess I like that, but somehow after watching this movie, I have a desire to be in one of Tim's obituaries.
