Movie Info

Tom Zuber makes his film debut with the low-budget crime comedy Lansdown, which seems to be inspired by the work of the Coen brothers (especially Fargo). Uptight New Jersey lawyer Jake Jorgenson (Paul Shields) has hired the shifty Gusaf (D.W. Warren) to spy on his sexy wife Lexi (Jennifer Carlson). After he finds out that his wife has been sleeping with building tradesman Pat (Chris Stewart), he hires Jamaican hit man Gendhi (Patrick Louis) to take care of things. Gendhi hires two dim-witted brothers, Hector (Chris Baran) and Benny (Marc Krinsky), to assist him with the killing. The crime goes awry when Pat shows up late for work and his boss, Carmine (John Mead), steps in at the wrong time. Conclusion involves several mix-ups as the bumbling criminals try to make good on the deal, resulting in more than one accidental death.

Everyone's comic imagination runs out way too early.

At 80 minutes, Lansdown still feels padded, visually lazy.

Though there's a thin noir line between lust and hate, Lansdown delivers nothing to stir the passions of filmgoers one way or the other.

A well-crafted, beautifully composed budget gem [that] sets it sights on the thin veneer of poise and professionalism we associate with the white-collar world.

Entertainment Today

Zuber's clever debut feature is a noir/thriller with comedic flair. It is, in fact, darkly hysterical.

Mom always said if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it. So, um, Lansdown has a pretty good score by Atli Orvarsson
