Pulp Fiction meets the Viatical Settlement industry.
I founded and own a successful Viatical and Life Settlement Brokerage, having been in life insurance since the '60's. This movie is a very good combination of black comedy, political and sexual satire, film noir mystery, and morality play. From my perspective, it gets better each time I watch it. Those of us in the industry know, of course, that key elements of the business side of the film are completely impossible, but it's easy to suspend disbelief and go along for the ride. About the only complaint I'd make is that the audio is at times very difficult to pick up, and I recommend boosting treble and minimizing bass to get all the interchanges between the two main characters. Lots of luck finding this movie via rental as not even Netflix carries it. I bought lots of copies for my Settlement business colleagues and a select few of my friends. If you liked Pulp Fiction, odds are you'll like this one...and vice-versa.
