Rubinek has promise as a director, but it won't be completely realized until he finds better material.

Audience Reviews for Jerry and Tom

Though often funny as a black comedy, with stylish direction and a great visual sense, it lacks a narrative and back story befitting of the actors involved. I loved both Sam Rockwell and Joe Mategna in it, but it was hard to relate to either of them with the unorthodox shifts in scenes and time, which did look good but sometimes gave the film an overall disjointed feel. Certainly unique enough to make it worth checking out.

"Jerry and Tom" is a wholly unknown work of cohesive directorial vision, showing us independent cinema at its absolute best. The director, Saul Rubinek, exhibits a largely unexpected amount of talent. Scenes will transition from one setting to another without cutting a single time, blending perfectly together. It's utterly magnificent and will no doubt leave you in question. As for the acting, Mantegna and Rockwell are great and funny in their lead roles and the supporting cast is phenomenal as well. I only had a problem with the flashbacks, which I could've done without, but overall, I was pleasantly surprised. The mood was just right and most of the violence was kept off-screen. You got wonder why the best films are the ones that no ones ever heard of, but that's a good thing. Movie lovers tend to feel accomplished when they find a hidden gem. I know I do.

Sadly overlooked film about an older hitman teaching a younger hitman the ropes. Saul Rubinek's direction is impressive, and very visual considering he is an actor. It brings to mind George Clooney's debut as director, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (oddly enough, also starring Rockwell). Scenes blend in and out of each other and some of the transitions between scenes will leave you scratching your head wondering just how they did that. And talk about an all star cast. Mantegna and Rockwell are predictably amazing in the lead roles, but Ted Danson, William H. Macy and everyone else does fantastic jobs in supporting roles. A constantly entertaining watch that leaves me scratching my head wondering why it doesn't have some sort of fanbase.
