Alex is the film student forced by his college professor to stop making Jackie Chan "homage" films and make "something from the heart" in order to graduate. Lars is the painting student and Alex's roommate who is looking for a way to become a tortured artist... as long as he can keep his BMW and American Express Gold Card. Together, they meet Blue, who has recently moved into their apartment building. After discovering that she's a "hit woman," Alex appeals to her senses as a film fan and persuades her to let him film a documentary on her last "hit." Heading towards the inevitability of the "hit" in Miami, Alex interviews Blue. Through his B&W lens he finds out why she does what she does, why she's afraid to fly, and about the foster father that sexually abused her until she ran away at the age of eleven. As Alex becomes increasingly blinded by his obsession with capturing his documentary he risks everything and everyone, by convincing Blue to travel to New Orleans to find her foster ...Written by
I agree with flimbuff's review. I never heard of this movie till I saw it on another board . . sounded interesting, so I watched it. What a good idea gone bad. Erik Palladino and Jennifer Rubin are both really good actors respectively, but even they can't save this movie. Comedy? Drama? Horror? (the various chopped off digits) . I think it should have gone the comedy route. Tony Denison is funny in this (is that a carbon monoxide detector?), as is Jon Polito, but they both are only in the movie for about 4 or 5 minutes each. The road trip was tediously boring (as were all of the lactose intolerant jokes and the camera equipment/film school dialog only a film student or a film geek would get). Oh, then it ends with "I Could Be Happy" by Altered Images played over the end credits. Huh???? An A for the actors, D- for all of the weird music choices (Hobo Thumpin' Slow Mo Babe?), an F for the lousy ADR, and finally, a D for the overall movie. Would like to see all of these great actors together again, in a good movie.
