Storyline

A Neo-Noir film told in three interlacing chapters: Eric is a dead man and he knows it. Death is imminent and he must make amends for his past sins, by killing those who wronged him, no matter the price: A wiseguy willing to do anything to move up in the world must now make the ultimate sacrifice. He must kill his best friend or in turn be killed: An F.B.I.agent turned P.I. is on the trail of a missing girl. In his long search for her he comes face to face with a host of unsavory characters who will lead him to perdition or salvation. Written by Jack Lee

Well done indie film!
10 August 2015 | by quickcuts11See all my reviews

I got a chance to see this film recently and I have to say I was really impressed with the overall quality of the film, especially since it's independently made. I've seen many indie films in my day and while some are decent they usually have that low budget look to them. But A life not to follow wasn't like that at all. In fact I was actually quite surprised at how well made it was. The look of the film was really high quality as well as most of the acting.

My favorite part of the the film was the way the director decided to tell the story in a non linear kind of way. Splitting up the story into 3 parts was a pretty bold decision but I think it really paid off!

Overall I think that if you have a chance to see this film you should. Even though there are no big name actors in it the story, style, and tone of the film itself is worth checking out. I think this film deserves a 10 on an indie scale, but since this is IMDb I think 7 is a really good score!
