A Really Twisted Dark Comedy (In A Good Way),
This review is from: Love Comes To The Executioner (DVD)
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.
