I saw "Dynamite Swine" at the 2010 JamFest Indie Film Festival in Hammond, Louisiana and was quite impressed with it.
It's a bit of a caper movie revolving around the premise of a guy who has gone one hand too far in his gambling and now has an impossibly short time to figure out how to retire an impossibly large debt owed to an impossibly onerous villain.
Best of all it's a funny film. There are parts where almost every cut is adding a new amusing element. It's possible the body of the film is perhaps too funny as there's no way to tie everything up at the end and top what has come before.
There are moments where the acting performances get a bit too stagey and tip into camp but the fast pace prevents any of those from being dwelled upon too long.
I'm sure this must have been done on a small budget but it's not painfully obvious and it's not detrimental to the flow of the film. I'd compare this to the early shoestring films of Robert Townsend or Robert Rodriguez except that it's more entertaining.
