An OK plot with a daft ending
24 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

A cold hearted mobster, who is dying of cancer is approached by a strange man who claims that he can make his afterlife pleasant by inducing sweet dreams & by erasing his memories of guilt.

As always, the talents employed by TFDS resonate well with the plot, the characters- the mobster (played by Abe Vigoda), his faithful comrade, the accuser-doctor & the eerie scientist are all played nicely.

But good actors are not a substitute for a not so good script. Although I do I like the small twist just before the climax, the climax itself is just daft & feeble & is short of anything fulfilling. I like watching TDFS but if my memory serves me right, this is not the first episode of this kind.

I give it a 4.
