Storyline

A crime has been committed and Detective Nicky Heart is on the case. Or at least he thinks it's a crime. After finding the literal pieces of Dolores in a ditch--a foot, an ear, Tuesday's panties--Heart (Jeff Buhler) and his puppy-like partner, Junior Inspector Donder (Joshua McBride), set off, stumbling, along the trail of the missing girl. But Heart is no match for the array of odd, ill-tempered, or outright grotesque witnesses he encounters. In a string of show-stopping performances including John Fleck (Murder One, Falling Down, Carnivale, and one of the NEA four) as Brad the rabid office manager, Susan Tyrrell (Cry Baby, Andy Warhol's Bad, and Oscar nominated for Fat City) as the neighbor with the bacterial face lift, and Mink Stole (Pink Flamingos, Serial Mom, Female Trouble) as Dolores's icy mother, Heart moves through some the stranger precincts of Los Angeles.

The fringes of society
14 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of seeing this short film at a private screening in Los Angeles. This is a movie crammed to the hilt with off-beat characters living on the fringes of Los Angeles society. Mr. Twa has written some stellar comedic dialog in his take on the modern-day detective film. The atmosphere is so thick with style I had the feeling I was watching an early Woody Allen film that somehow got sucked into David Lynch's world.

How many films keep you laughing every 30 seconds, or leaves you with your mouth agape? Not an easy task, but Twa pulls it off beautifully. I kept thinking to myself, "If only life were this interesting in reality..."
