#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – John Herzfeld deftly welds together a multitude of subplots– a loser hitman and a cool assassin involved in an insurance scam; a washed-up director, turned suicidal, if only he had someone to care for his beloved dog; a snooty art dealer, wracked by kidney stones, cared for by his devoted assistant; a grungy deranged vice cop, now partnered with a fresh-faced rookie; and two beautiful and jealous women entangled in their deadly scheme–into a spoof of the crime thriller genre.
Plot: In a sleepy bedroom community of LA’s San Fernando Valley, the murder of a professional athlete by two hit men sets into motion a chain of events that puts the mundane lives of a dozen residents on a collision course. This clever tale tells the story of two hit men, a mistress, a nurse, a vindictive ex-wife, a wealthy art dealer and his lovelorn assistant, a suicidal writer and his dog, and a bitter cop and his partner.

Solid crime thriller with talented ensemble acting
Writer-director John Herzfeld’s mining of the multi-layered, heavily populated neo-crime genre sparked by the popularity of Pulp Fiction is an above average, if workmanlike, movie that should satisfy most aficionados of the style. Weaving together the stories of more than half a dozen interesting denizens of the San Fernando Valley, Herzfeld makes the most of his situations, allowing talented performers like Danny Aiello, Eric Stoltz and Jeff Daniels to show-off their chops. Additionally, Paul Mazursky shines as the depressed, suicidal director Teddy Peppers and Charlize Theron delivers an electrifying turn that should have made her a big star.
Weird and very watchable dark comedy/drama.
John Herzfeld writes and directs a tangled story that unravels and rewinds itself. The plot seems to involve a murder by hire that goes awry. A dozen or so Californians have their lives intersect with each going different directions. Violence, sex and dark humor are the adhesive for this scattered, but interesting movie. An ensemble cast keeps your attention.
James Spader is a very effectual and ruthless assassin. The drop dead gorgeous Charlize Theron accomplishes raising blood pressures. Her fight with Teri Hatcher is one you will remember. Danny Aiello is an aging hit man and provider of comic relief. Jeff Daniels is a burnt out detective and Eric Stoltz is a detective wannabe.
Rounding out the cast is Paul Mazursky, Peter Horton, Marsha Mason, and small parts for Keith Carradine and Louise Fletcher.
You will probably want to invite friends over and watch this thing again. It is worth it.
