Movie Info

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 Jennifer. Furious, Jennifer soon gets revenge by cutting off Conrad's penis with a pair of scissors, and then holding his member for ransom. While Conrad is told by a surgeon that his penis could possibly be reattached, Jennifer wants 10,000 dollars for the organ, money he doesn't have, and he discovers she fully intends to use this situation to settle a large number of old scores. Nowhere Man also features a cameo appearance from Troma Team Pictures head Lloyd Kaufman in a rare non-comic role.

Critic Reviews for Nowhere Man

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5)

Dreadful acting, direction and script.

New York Post
Top Critic

This deliberately repugnant thriller is told from one distraught man's perspective, as he copes with the emasculating impact of love.

Top Critic

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.

Village Voice
Top Critic

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.

Audience Reviews for Nowhere Man

for a guy, one of the most uncomfortable movies ever; the DV cam is not good enough; feels like a short schedule with hardly any rehearsal, but that charms at times; the outtakes at the end were a bad move
