Saw this film last night - and look for it when it hits vid. A wild ride story about a big time corporate headhunter who is great at sizing people up... but his size is his problem. He's really short and has a very tall very hot wife. Because he deals with wealthy CEO guys every day, but is not wealthy himself... he has a side job to bring in some extra income - when he interviews a CEO he asks about what sort of art they own... then breaks in and steals it. That's the opening of the film - so no spoilers.
But things go very wrong when he steals from the wrong guy... and it's a sick and twisted rollercoaster - and you will never look at an empty toilet paper tube in the same way.
This film has its cake and eats it, too - it's like a crazy Coen Bros movie that is non-stop crazy chase (bloody and violent) but still has heart and some great emotional scenes that would be at home in a serious drama from Norway.
One of the other great things is how the pieces all come together at the end. Things that you didn't know were set ups end up paying off. There are other things... which would be spoilers.
