My Review: Starring Joe Pesci, Kristy Swanson, Todd Louiso, George Hamilton, Dyan Cannon, David Spade, Anthony Mangano, Andy Comeau, Joe Basile. This dark comedy moves at quite a clip. Meet Charlie (Andy Comeau). He's on his way to Mexico - To meet his fiance, Laurie Bennet (Christy Swanson) and her parents (George Hamilton and Dyan Cannon). Unfortunately, Charlie picks up the wrong duffle bag as he's leaving the airport. When Tommy (Joe Pesci) discovers his Bag 'O Heads is missing, he quickly heads out in search of Charlie. Those heads belong to Big Sep - The mafia/crime boss, and he's gonna get his 8 heads; one way or another. While Tommy heads for Charlie's apartment, Charlie discovers his luggage is full of craniums. His prospective mother in law (Dyan Cannon) also makes the shocking discovery, and heads straight for the liquor cabinet. When Tommy arrives at Charlie's apartment, he begins torturing the room mates (Louiso and Spade) for information. Charlie's predicament is compounded by the head of his fiance's family (Hamilton), and the hi jinks are hilarious. The acting was good, the casting great, and the comedy dark, but not gross. A dream sequence with singing heads is great, and the movie gets my vote.

Collection ID 186
Director: Géla Babluani
Starring: George Babluani, Pascal Bongard, Aurélien Recoing, Fred Ulysse, Nicolas Pignon
Genre: Art House & International
Studio: Palm Pictures / Umvd   Release date: 2005   Rated: NR   
Language (Country): French (France)
Summary: 22 year-old Sébastien (Georges Babluani) leads an impoverished life constantly struggling to support his immigrant family. While repairing the roof of a neighbor's house, he overhears a conversation about a forthcoming package which promised to make the household rich. Sensing the opportunity of a lifetime, Sébastien intercepts the package which contains a series of veiled instructions. Following the cryptic clues, he assumes a false identity and manages to slip through the grasp of the encroaching police as he ventures deeper towards the unknown. The closer he gets to his destination, the less he understands. Ultimately, he comes face to face with a disreputable ring of clandestine gamblers placing bets on a depraved game of chance where the spoils are unimaginable millions, and the losses are counted in lives.
My Rating:
My Review: Do yourself a favor. Don't watch a trailer for this movie. The trailer is a spoiler, and I'll do my best not to repeat that mistake. Set in France. Starring French and Georgian actors. This movie is a powerful tale (in black and white) of desperation, risk and deadly consequences. An immigrant worker (an unremarkable man with ordinary ambitions) overhears a conversation about some risky business, with the possibility of a high payoff. In a twist of fate, he takes someone else's place in a mysterious gambit, and places himself in great danger for the chance to collect on a huge payoff. When the stakes turn out to be higher than he expected, there's no escape from this deadly game. An incredibly tense thriller, superbly paced and acted. The writing was excellent. Tight, taught and well thought out. Written and directed by Géla Babluani, this director did a fantastic job of moving writing into realization using this film. I'll be on the look-out for more by this talented man.
