Tom to the Max
28 June 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw 'A Broken Life' at a test screening in Toronto and overall I enjoyed it very much. The premise of a guy wanting to videotape his own suicide sounds pretty bleak but in fact, there's a lot of humor in the film and some pretty touching moments between Max and his filmmaker sidekick Bud. It was particularly interesting to see Tom Sizemore deliver a strong performance in a leading role and a real departure from what I've seen him in before. Some of the best moments are between Tom and the Vet played by Ving Rhames. There's also a great scene with Saul Rubinek. Following on from that thought, my major criticism is that the film occasionally feels like a series of vignettes but overall it's still a great ride.
