Editorial Reviews

Fresh out of College, Heck Prigusivac (Jonathan Tucker) finds himself stuck in his hometown, where the biggest industry is the local jail. As a result of the Prigusivac predisposition for murder - Heck's late father called Death Row "home", and now his estranged brother Chick (Jeremy Renner) is behind bars- finding a "proper" job proves difficult. Desperate, Heck takes a job known as a "Closer" at the prison. Only after he falls for Chick's ex-girlfriend, the convicted murderess Dori (Walk the Line's Ginnifer Goodwin) also on Death Row, does he realize: he is the Executioner! Now, caught in a lustful, twisted love triangle, Heck discovers that perhaps he isn't so different from Chick. After all, the only way he can get the girl is if one of them winds up dead.

I saw this at SXSW, last year and just found out it's available. Very sick and funny!

Essentially, the hero just graduated from college with a degree in Classical Languages. He wants to teach high school Latin but ends up being a prison executioner in the small town where he grew up.

Complicating matters, his big brother's on death row (for trying to kill him) and so is his brother's ex-girlfriend. Creating a uniquely hilarious love triangle.

I found out that the lead, Jonathan Tucker, actually took Latin in high school. Making his scenes trying to teach Latin to the prisoners even funnier.

If you like Monty Python, Harold and Maude and Grosse Point Blank, you'll like this.

Kyle Bergersen wrote and directed this very strange comedic film noir, a movie that didn't get a lot of attention in its theatrical release but that is gaining a following in the DVD format. It is smart, clever, weird, and very well made. Bergersen has the ability to take a rather silly story to reveal a lot of important questions about education, capital punishment, prison life, and the delicate balance between humanity and inhumanity! LOVE COMES TO THE EXECUTIONER works.

Heck Prigusivac (Jonathan Tucker) is a fresh graduate form college, having majored in Latin and Romance Languages, who returns to his small hometown where his ditsy alcoholic mother Miriam (Christine Ebersole) struggles with her addiction and with the fact that her son Chick (Jeremy Renner) sits on Death Row in the neighboring prison. Heck lands a job teaching Latin to the inmates, but with the proviso that he also accept the job as Closer (or Executioner). Heck adjusts to the strange situation and manages to learn the trade of capital punishment by lethal injection. He confronts his estranged brother Chick on death row and the two have word battles about their relationship AND the fact that Chick's ex-girlfriend Dori Dumchovic (Ginnifer Goodwin) is the first female to sit on death row a few cells down form Chick. Heck and Dori flirt and Heck 'falls' for Dori, actually impregnating her in the confines of the prison. Heck manages to become a popular Latin teacher with the inmates, but has some psychological stress as the Closer - especially as the time for Heck to execute Dori approaches.

Let me tell you how much I enjoyed this little unknown movie. This dark comedy with dramatic overtones is a gem. Jonathan Tucker is the crown that the gem rests on. Why he has never made it huge is beyond me. He has a college education in spite of the family predilection toward murder, his brother is on death row and his father was already put to death....where is the comedy? Jonathan Tucker can't get a job except as the executioner in the prison! the dialog between every character is priceless. His mom is dying from drinking and smoking, he falls in love with the only woman on death row who also happens to be his brothers girlfriend. I loved the performances, Jeremy Renner plays the brother. But how can this lead to anything? check it out, really!

I thought this movie was okay but if you are a big Jeremy Renner fan than it is worth buying.

There are so many things I could say about this movie. It's a great early film of a lot of familiar faces, and well done without a huge budget. The characters are all delightfully absurd, and the story while being relatively predictable, is a fun ride. It's a dark comedy along the lines of Eulogy or Sunshine Cleaning, but just a little more over the top (and the film knows it). One of the highlights is the mother who used to be in the adult film business and likes to watch her old movies when she's feeling depressed (she even named one of her sons after a fellow star...).

Jonathan Tucker takes a job as star Executioner at a local prison, where his estranged brother Jeremy Renner is slated to die for murder.
But the sibling rivalry really heats up when he finds unconventional love in his brother's ex-girl friend Ginnifer Goodwin. Trouble is, she's also on
Death Row and slated for execution. With the clock ticking, the sparks fly as this love triangle becomes the ultimate fatal attraction.

I only watched it because Jeremy Renner was in it. You will know the plot after watching just a bit of it. It's absurd and mildly funny...which I think is what the filmmaker intended... It just doesn't quite hit the mark. Ginnifer Goodwin and Jeremy Renner are good in their roles, as is Jonathan Tucker. And, there are a couple of funny scenes, one with the mother... Watch it, don't watch it...

I love this movie!!! I loved the relationship between the two brothers and all the characters had their shining moment. My very favorite moment was when Chick sang American Pie :-) I recommend this film to people who like dark comedies. It was not too dark though...just a little bit. Jeremy Renner is a phenomenal actor-just in case you hadn't figured that out! lol
