Movie Reviews

Off the beaten track, pleasant but not that memorable
David J. Loftus | Portland, OR USA | 05/03/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Sheldon Kasner (Rob LaBelle) is a nebbishy loan officer for Hebrew Loans Bank who embezzles $2 million of mobster money. He heads for a small town and joins the local Chevrah Kadisha -- the society that prepares bodies for burial according to traditional Jewish rituals -- with the plan to acquire a body and use it to fake his own death in order to take the mob off his trail. But Sheldon is charmed by the elder gents who run the society and grudgingly let him join, which that leads to even more trouble. This pseudo-noir/caper film, written and directed by Nicholas Racz in 2002, is cleanly made and decently acted, and the plot twists are solid, if not particularly memorable."
