I saw this movie off Netflix yesterday, and despite a decent cast and good setup, the payoff didn't quite live up to it's first act.
This movie concerns an insurance salesman (Jack Davenport, who I recall from a short-lived TV series on so many years ago called "Swing Town") who gets mixed up with two gangsters (Hugo Weaving & Brian Cox) in an effort to make more money and provide for his family, but things don't go as he planned.
They set the film in 1975, which I don't think was exactly specified in the beginning, so I'm thinking to myself WTF??- land line phones, and look at those out of date clothes and '70s motifs?? LOL Well, anyway, THAT part of the film worked. I wish they would've used a good '70s soundtrack of tunes, but I'm guessing the budget on this thriller was too low for the rights to any songs-?? Carol Kane and Judy Greer round out the cast.
