Don McKay Reviews

April 7, 2010
Goldberger gets a few good tonal feints in, especially when he consults the Coen recipe book for the disorienting effect of blood (and bloody violence) on American simple folk.

When you pack your movie with performers like Mr. Church, Ms. Leo, Mr. Rebhorn and Keith David (as Donâ(TM)s old friend), all with faces and deliveries that can slide easily between comedy and menace, youâ(TM)re holding a full house.

Don McKay certainly has its moments, but it never manages to maintain the consistent tone so crucial if a black comedy is going to actually be funny.

This is a movie that, if you can make it to the last 30 minutes, starts to make some sense. It seems the plot twist is the only good idea in the script.

An admirable attempt even if the film only works spottily.

A strange, largely inert indie thriller.

An alluring blonde has spelled many a noir protagonist's doom, and that stereotypical femme is exploited for modest suspense and humor in writer-director Jake Goldberger's off-kilter tale.

A ludicrously pretentious train wreck masquerading as a movie.

Writer-director Jake Goldberger's mild riff on Double Indemnity, etc., works best as a showcase for its veteran cast.
