Storyline

You know you're a marked man when you're released from jail and the entire police force knows it. So it is for Joe Murky (Victor Altomare), a charismatic master of alternate identities, who walks out of the penitentiary with the cops still obsessing over the "cold case" of the stolen money he stashed before his incarceration. The heat is on. But - aided by his longtime pal and "pro" Max - Joe has a more personal motivation than money. Sometime during Joe's prison term, his niece Shawna has gone missing. And it soon becomes obvious that her fate and the police's interest in him are intertwined. On Joe's tail almost from the moment of his release is his police case worker Officer Curry (Robert Davi) and Katy Simm (Monique Zordan). There are dollar signs in their eyes, blinding them to Joe's plan to turn the tables on his pursuers. Joe wants answers. He's especially curious about the cop on Shawna's case, Det. Pendell and his sudden decision to drop the investigation. Peeling away the ... Written by Goran Kalezic

Unweaving the Status Quo
22 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A refreshing comedy that rejects the typical Hollywood comedy tropes. Favouring an unconventional style of script, Altomare pushes the boundaries of the restrictive rise of political correctness by embracing his alter egos; and by using his natural acting method he is easily able the bring realism to the comedic stereotypes. The Great Chameleon is a paradigm example of a comedy that is unwavering in its goal to make light of common cultural customs. Although many would argue that portraying such stereotypes on screen is "crude", "unnecessary" or "untasteful", when looking at a deeper level it, like many forms of social satire, attempts to show how serious we take ourselves, and that this is exactly what leads to the skewed conceptions of others. Thus, Altomare and his team use their artistic tools as an instrument to show the differences and consequences of suppressing obvious beliefs. It is simply an expression of the human mind.
