Bernard Franklin: Franklin, what are we so scared of? You only get one shot at this life. There are no do-overs. Time wasted, is time lost. The past is a ghost. The future a dream. There is only right now. We need to forgive each other, Franklin. Forgive and keep moving forward because we're all so ridiculously imperfect. And we need to find a place we call home. A place were we know we're loved and we feel safe. I see it all so clearly now. It doesn't matter if you live in a small apartment or some ...

Darkly Intriguing
25 February 2013 | by (Boulder CO) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie from a Redbox, for something amusing to watch on a night off from work. Instead, I found it to be a psychological cross section of character studies of people I don't get to see much in films, or life, for that matter.

It's not a film for everyone. The characters are people who would be considered the lowlifes by most folks in our society. These characters are those that are the broken, the cast offs, the castaways, the hopeless. But these people have their own dreams and dignities, that we may scoff at, but are what keep them going.

Matt Lucas brings a kind of innocent goofiness to his character, Franklin Franklin. His brother was taking care of him up until a year before. When you take Franklin's behavior, and then other certain scenes together, you may conclude that he has a mental illness of some kind. That said, it changed my empathy for his character very much.

Why Franklin finds himself in the dilemma of disposing of his landlord's dead body comes as a surprise, and as he goes about it, the viewer comes to know Franklin better.

There is some wonderful star power in this movie, and they shine subtly, but brilliantly. The music is spot on for the scenes and the direction and editing are perfection.

In the end, there are some repetitions that are silly and some patterns that are interesting. And the twist at the end is great. It's a long way to Switzerland!
