    Crime Caper Comedy With Cult Potential!

    If you like the other films I recommended, you're crazy not to try this one!This is a film that you walk away from wondering, ''Why hasn't this been exploited the way Pulp Fiction or Fargo has?'' The plot is coherently twisted around a flashback that gradually explains why the guy held captive in the opening scene is about to be plugged by his friend. LOVED Sam Rockwell as the villiage idiot mafia man, and Joe Mantegna is always a treat. Do yourself a favor and rent this dark-yet-light comedy caper!
