| A small slice of Coen
Walter (Peter Stormare) is a small Ontario town chief of police with a large Mennonite farming community. They find the naked body of a young woman. It's his first murder. He's trying to overcome his angry past. However the murder leads to Rita (Jill Hennessy) who provides an alibi for her boyfriend Steve (Stephen Eric McIntyre).

This is a festival indie by writer/director Ed Gass-Donnelly. With Peter Stormare and those great thumping songs by Bruce Peninsula, this has the feel of a Coen movie. The story isn't that compelling. It needs to be either more twisty or more grotesque. It doesn't compare to its modern compatriots. Stormare is amazing as he usually is. He is a great character actor in need of a big time role. And the music just drives so hard that it energizes a pretty simple story. This movie is much more about this quiet character as most of his struggle is interior.
