There seem to be a raft of low-budget comedies with mob plots or parodies. This isn't one of those. This is a strikingly original, character-driven gem that does an amazing job balancing all its elements into a pitch perfect comic tone that infects the audience and had everyone laughing throughout. (I caught it at the Austin Film Festival.) Walton Goggins creates an unforgettable and unique comic character in Tino, the mob fixer. Hats off to him and writer-director Ray McKinnon for making risky choices and sticking with them. For example, McKinnon plays twin brothers, one gay, one a good ol' boy, and makes them totally separate and truthful and hilarious. Lisa Blount is also fabulous as Randy's clinically-depressed wife. Burt Reynolds also makes a great cameo appearance.
