Joshua Elliott Pickel,
A mortician's (Method Man) life is suddenly changed when a dead woman's body comes into his morgue, jolting old memories from his past. As days go by, he starts seeing a young boy hiding around the vicinity of his morgue. When they finally speak, the mortician learns that the boy wants to enter the morgue to see his dead mother one last time. The person who killed his mother is also after him. The mortician goes out of his way to ensure the boy has closure while at the same time keeping him safe from harm, in an attempt to achieve closure to his own personal tragedy. Written by
Elizabeth Obermeier, Marketing Manager, Angela Jurgensen
If there ever was a time for Method Man to credit himself by his real name: Clifford Smith I feel this was the one to do it.
Now don't get me wrong I think Method Man doing his thing is great (one of the better rappers turned actors for me) but with this one he truly did commit to do something different. And that's a big reason why I like this movie.
He plays a lone-wolf mortician, a bit of an "social reject" if you will who unwillingly becomes dragged into a messy situation involving the local gang-members.
The poster makes it look to me like more of a horror movie (which it's definitely not) and the synopsis is not really accurate (although I will try to update it so hopefully that will change).
What it is is more of a drama and a character study of the mortician with moments of suspense and even though it has some flaws regarding the script and Method Man's everchanging beard the good most definitely outweighs the bad for me.
