Peep this trailer: "The Mortician" starring Method Man

I see Mef trying to expand his horizons as an actor...

Here's the Sales Pitch:
Alienated and cold, The Mortician (Method Man) processes the corpses with steely disregard. He is lonely and isolated. He is introduced to his new employee, Noah, (EJ Bonilla) by the morgue boss (Edward Furlong). Noah is a volatile youth working as part of his parole.Noah brings the notorious gangster, Carver (Dash Mihok), and his crew to the mortuary door. The Mortician's attention is pricked by the tattoo of Botticelli's 'Birth of Venus' inked on the body of a murdered woman (Judy Marte), that arrives at the morgue, triggering a series of haunting dreams from his childhood. Discovering a scared child, Kane (Cruz Santiago), fleeing the morgue, he's forced to act. They become reluctant allies, struggling for redemption as they run. Through his awkward heroism, the Mortician reconnects with his long forgotten past, and finds the answers he's been searching for. He find redemption and peace.
 "The Mortician', starring Method Man, Dash Mihok, Edward Furlong, Wendell Pierce, EJ Bonilla, Angelic Zambrana, Judy Marte, Dana Fuchs and Cruz Santiago. Written and directed by Gareth Maxwell Roberts.
Official selection Berlinale Berlin Film Festival 2011, Sitges Fil, Festival 2011, German Fantasy Fest 2011 and the New Orleans Film Festival 2011.
This looks interesting. I'll definitely check for it.

I was skeptical at the beginning but, by the end of the trailer, I was sold.

Look like he's running the border between camp and drama in his performance but it's a fine line with a character like that.

It's on my list now.

verification word: Ailigra: another damn drug for something or other brought to you by Phizer. Ask your doctor is Ailigra is right for you.

"Ask your doctor is Ailigra is right for you" = LOL!

Yeah... that's a good observation. I don't know what I was expecting when I clicked on the trailer, but I was pleasantly surprised.

I have to admit, this does look like a good movie. strait to DVD or not, we could use more of those.

Right. I am gaining respect for the "straight to DVD" option. Like the HBO original movie, it means less people in between me and the creative person in terms of gate-keepers, and that's a good thing.
