Three thieves scheme to steal a flawless 20-carate diamond worth $2 million. But as their plan unfolds, everything begins to fall apart. The rock is swallowed by a man who then dies, leading to a gruesome amateur autopsy. Also, significant others and fellow criminals resort to blackmail to get a piece of the action, and all three men fall victim to rampant paranoia. Written by
Surprisingly entertaining micro-budget black comedy. It's a diamond heist film, with acceptable acting, interesting characters, darkly humorous situations and dialog, noir-like double crosses, blackmail, murder, bad cops, stupid criminals, and a gratuitous sex scene. What more could you ask for in such an entertaining gem, no pun intended, of a movie. In addition to all of the above, there is some blood and guts thrown into the mix, but it's all part of the fun. To say "8 of Diamonds" exceeds expectations, would be a huge understatement. Definitely has re-watch ability and potential cult status. Recommended
