The lead role created by the actor (Lou Pappas) is a conundrum. A ruthless hit man that you really care about. This film was created on a budget but despite having excitement and being a bit scary (hunted by ruthless killers?) is also has a lot of dark comedy.
The humor is perfect as it keeps the film from being bleak. An aging hit man whose trademark, last shot is exactly as how the bullet entered JFK's head. While nothing would ever make me think that is funny, what is is his nickname. His name is Mr. Knowles, and they call him 'Grassy'. One line in the film says, 'does he deal drugs?' 'no, don't you get it, Grassy Knowles, he's the guy that killed Kennedy".
Something very likable about this film. While it's not on the level of Chaz Palmerri's Bronz Tale (the best of the best) it is clearly a similar feel. A guy writes a play, finds people to produce it and is cast in the lead. I wish them all the best.
