Price, a former hitman, is struggling to cope with retirement. He left the assassination business to live the "easy life." However, retirement arrived with its own agenda. It was not the instant peace and calm that Price expected. Rather, it was emptiness, boredom, and, worst of all, restlessness. The Last Lullaby plummets Price back into his old life and forces him into a corner from which he may never escape. Price's old ways no longer work for him when his heart opens, and he finds life beyond his profession. The tension finally boils, as Price must decide to close himself off again or open himself up to a world beyond his control. Written by
During the phone calls that take place at 45:30 and 46:46, the camera, boom, mic, and boom operator are all visible in the stainless steel orb on Martin's desk. At the beginning of the 46:46 phone call, you can see the boom operator tracking Martin as he moves to his chair. He then lowers the mic as Martin begins his dialog. See more »

You know, I see a guy over there who's just cute enough to catch my interest, and just drunk enough to think like wise. So excuse me...

It's hard to believe this is a first-time feature effort for director Jeffrey Goodman. It passed my ultimate movie test: I was never bored for a moment, nor did my attention waver. The spare dialog, the juxtaposition of the loud, jarring gunshots with the quiet pace of the movie, the inexorable drawing-together of Price and Sarah, were woven together beautifully to create a memorable movie. Tom Sizemore says volumes without saying a word. His tortured face and body language say it all. The fact that this is something of a comeback film for the brilliant Mr. Sizemore, whose past behavior has not been consistent with his talents, makes it even more delicious to watch. Bravo to Jeffrey Goodman for a terrific movie!
