Dir. AviNesher (104min, USA, 1999)
"In life only two things are certain, death and taxes." This well-worn phrase takes on a gritty new meaning in WJFF’s Visionary Award Winner Avi Nesher’s crisply paced thriller.
What starts as a routine tax evasion investigation quickly morphs in a cold blooded murder trial, full of unsavory pitfalls, and dangerous turns. Putting his paper-shuffling detective routine to the test in a greedy world full of greed and gunplay, Al Benjamin (the criminally underappreciated Joe Pantoliano of Risky Business, Memento and Matrix) makes for an unlikely police hero – one guided mainly by his working class ethos and strong moral compass.
