Wonderful and Quirky
8 November 2015 | by Raven-1969See all my reviews

Mort hasn't let go of a lot of things; a passion for comic books, a fear that he let down his detective father, a preoccupation with an unsolved murder committed long ago in his small hometown and an attraction to younger women. It doesn't help his situation when a former schoolmate, Skippy, returns to town. Mort has always disliked this guy. When Skippy starts hitting on Mort's attractive young comic store assistant, Ellen, it bothers Mort. But not nearly so much as when Ellen goes missing soon after. I loved the independent nature of the film, its theme of a man still behaving as a child, and its dark humor. "You have the hand and eye coordination of a clam," says Mort and there are many cute one liners like this but not nearly enough. I wish it had more depth and didn't leave some things hanging, yet overall it was wonderful and quirky in a good way. The filmmakers aren't beholden to anyone and I like it when a film is so free. World premiere seen at the Toronto International Film Festival 2015.
