For Martin Palado, the self-made millionaire, failure is not an option. Since his retirement, Martin's mind has led him to dark obsessions. Posing as a bum, he panhandles on the streets of Denver. When Martin fails at begging, he falls back on his old habit of hiring Jackson Hash to remove his competition. Jackson carries his reputation as a brutal killer proudly. If the money is right, no life is too sacred. After one particularly bloody hit, Jackson has an epiphany about his life. He reforms himself, opening his own business, where he befriends Johnny Stockman and is invited to join his weekly craps game. During the game, Jackson realizes that his life hasn't really come clean, and all their lives are changed forever. Written by Spacedog

Did You Know?


The "Tattooed Car" in the film was a promotional item, raffled off at a party just prior to filming. Later, the car was impounded from the house of the man who won it, and eventually destroyed. The car was one of a kind, and hand painted by tattoo artist Chris J-tot of Phantom 8 Studios in Englewood Colorado. The car took four months to complete and 10 seconds to destroy. See more »

About 50 filmmakers a year make this movie. Tough Guys, Guns, Drugs, and clichés. The most believable performance came from the Mike character. Otherwise everything else seemed very forced, maybe it was the script. The rich old guy and the dude with muttonchops didn't do it for me. The quality and tone of Spotless was great, but misguided. Not sure who the dp was but I really thought that was the most impressive part of the movie. I was in Denver visiting a friend that I tagged along with when I saw the movie. I understand this was shot for under $50,000 and I have to say with it being a crime thriller wouldn't digital of saved money and set a raw tone that this movie desperately needed.
