A man learns the hard way just how bad he's been to his girlfriend in this independent drama laced with dark humor. Conrad (Michael Rodrick) is a high-strung, impulsive man who shares a home with his fiancée, Jennifer (Debbie Rochon). While their relationship has not always been cordial, Conrad crosses a line when he discovers a pornographic videotape has been left at his front door -- and that Jennifer is the female lead in the movie. A violent quarrel follows, ending with Conrad raping

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Dreadful acting, direction and script.
This deliberately repugnant thriller is told from one distraught man's perspective, as he copes with the emasculating impact of love.
The bleak absurdity of its predicaments cries out for a tone of pitch-dark comedy to stave off the unintended laughter that it is virtually certain to elicit.
If Nowhere Man isn't as consistent as McCann's excellent 2001 feature Revolution #9, it further establishes him as an unpredictable, uncompromising talent working well beneath the industry radar.
Tim McCann's witty video cheapster takes its squirmy premise both at face value and as deadpan metaphor.
Less a nod to the Beatles song than to avenging spouse trimmer Lorena Bobbitt, the film pits the two most off putting male fantasies toe to toe - eunuch and porn stud - and just kinda lays back to watch the fur fly.
It's the kind of aimless junk the creators like to label "dark comedy," except it's never funny.
...the cheap look and the intensity of the actors involved give the movie a darkness that effectively counteracts the juvenile humor
An unpleasant slog to an unrewarding conclusion that feels far longer than it is.
Not since Paul Verhoeven's The Fourth Man has a film produced such castration anxiety.
both Rodrick and Rochon are engaging beyond the quality of the material, especially Rochon, who ought to get some real roles in Hollywood before she burns out
If you're into nasty little revenge tales shot on muddy video, this flick may provide a fix. All others have been warned.
