    With the death of a loved one a policeman, a soul self-defined by how well "put together" he is begins to disintegrate - and there is nothing he can do to stop the process. And so the inherent comedy and drama of Jim Cummings excellent work emerges, unfolding like a flower, while Jim Cummings the man steps forward as perhaps the only successor to Billy Wilder ever.

    Thunder Road is a one of a kind film and a strong character performance. Jim Cummings has a bright future and I hope he maintains independence from the Hollywood grind. The film is often uncomfortable watch and that's a massive compliment to Cummings. The breakdown of his character is so awkward and unusual you cant' help but feel uncomfortable to watch. The black humour is well timed and Cummings manages those moments to perfection. I could name many different scenes but nothing can take away from that opening long take. It's one of the reasons I enjoy indie cinema over the corporations. You don't have strong character work like this film and it's a shame a film with such strength largely went ignored. This is a film worthy of streaming cult status and that follow-up by Cummings can't come soon enough. 07/06/2020

    Cummings understands that there's a very fine line between cringe comedy and devastating tragedy and his near perfect performance does both seamlessly.
