This movie is great! The dialogue is great! The movie really focuses on the trouble with stereotypes, especially racial ones. Eight culturally diverse con men meet at hotel lounge to buy/sell two kidneys and a cadaver filled with cocaine. All they know about the party they're supposed to meet and trade with is their race. Unfortunately it all goes wrong! If you like Quentin Tarrentino or Guy Ritchie's films, you'll love the Gristle! This movie is fast paced! Excellent film!
