Mayhem at its finest
31 December 2011 | by (Echo Park) – See all my reviews

It's really amazing what people can do with limited budgets, if they have a vision. Led by some very talented actors and an obviously talented director, this insane genius of a movie deals with a slightly delusional small-time crook and his misadventures. It was really quite funny and had the audience laughing from start to finish. Without giving away too much, let's just say that "Jerry" is a gas-huffing semi-schizoid lunatic who barely has control of his life, and that he's surrounded by equally disastrous characters, none o whom have a grasp on much either. Add to that some seriously deranged relationship issues and you've got a lot of fun... If you're looking for a fun indie movie with a bizarre plot and sharp turns of phrase throughout, then look no further.
