*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This is a very clever film about a hapless guy whose life is a mess. His mother is an invalid, his wife left with the kids and his boss is Satan. Okay, the boss isn't Satan, but he's really bad! He nags poor Rob constantly and when you watch the actor playing the boss (Howard Swengler) you are shocked that anyone can talk that fast and be that abrasive!! In particular, he nags the man to get a great story even though it's just a community newspaper. He encourages Rob to kill if he has to in order to get a great headline, so Rob finally decides to come up with a dandy story---he'll kill himself and his mother to make the boss happy!! If there is anything wrong with this film it's that it's too short and just ends too soon. I really hope the guys who made this film get some funding and remake this into a longer and more hashed-out project, as it's a dandy little film.

8/10

The Snyder Brothers do it again. Riveting dramatic comedy that will leave you on the edge of your seat. Winning performance by newcomer Howard Swengler--a natural comedic talent destined for stardom. Robert Snyder portrays his character infallibly--it is so believable that you have to wonder if his portrayal is not completely fictional. This film is a moving tribute to the late Eleanor Snyder, who co-stars in the film and who, in reality, was a fervent supporter of her sons' film aspirations. Ralph Edsell, with his roguish charm, adds an intense element to the film. Philip Snyder's wizardly editing skills prove that he shows great promise and a unique talent that will surely be seen in several more pictures in the future.
