Charlie is a former baseball player. In his final game, he gave himself a career-ending injury when he tried to snap a bat over his leg in anger.

From its humble beginnings as a tannery for hog bellies, the Wood and Wood corporation has evolved into a vast, corrupt modern-day holdings corporation. Lifelong employee and self-described 'company man' HENRY WOOD (Eddie Jemison) should have been handed the reins to the company after his father died three months ago, but he was instead passed over by the board for an interim president, WALT FORD (Robert Forster). Today, top management has gathered at headquarters to await an offer of acquisition that will make them each rich beyond their dreams--and divorce Henry once and for all from the business his grandfather started 80 years earlier. The day starts badly when Walt Ford is found hanging from a noose in the boardroom. When management elects to ignore the suicide until their deal has closed, the decision sends the entire office into a death spiral of finger pointing, deal-making, prophetic PowerPoint presentations and gruesome murders.

So I am a big fan of indie film but never bothered to write a review til now. When I found out the Austin Film Festival was going on while I was visiting Austin, I was so excited and decided to watch the festival's opening movie Coffee, Kill Boss.
This film is a quirky witty comedy thriller. There were a lot of killings happening in the movie but the music and tone let you know you're aren't supposed to take any of it seriously. Think Mel Brooks or even Dr. Strangelove. Most of the actors are not well known, but they all did an excellent job. I liked the characters Dom and Chuck, they are the funniest ones. It's always fun to watch this type of movie with a big crowd.
Coffee, Kill Boss is not the type of comedy full of dumb jokes. A lot of lines have double meanings. I have to go back and watch it again when the movie officially released. If you get a chance to watch it, I recommend it.
