The film Quentin Tarantino never made, about a down at heel mob flunky (Hopper) infatuated with porn actress Daryl Hannah. Shades of Donnie Brasco crossed with a revenge thriller streaked with black humour. Pretty good on the whole.
This Tarantino knock-off is a real mess. Frankie works for a 2nd rate mobster who deals in pornography. Frankie falls for it's star attraction, Margaret, played by Daryl Hannah. Joey is the director of these sex movies and decides to go behind the mobsters back in obtaining extra cash. This proves to be a no no and with Frankie getting involved in the mess one only knows whether or not he'll make it out alive (especially since the title suggests otherwise). I'll just be up front and say he doesn't die and it's not his last days. Although I've seen better days with these actors in other movies. Even this type of story has been played out better in other movies. Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead is one film that comes to mind while I was watching this movie.
Quirky story and performances by Hopper and Sutherland, funny, twisted and entertaining for a rainy afternoon.
