Product Description

When Conrad discovers a pornographic video featuring his fiancée, he calls the wedding off. But now, after an emotionally brutal week, an abused Jennifer has cut off Conrad's penis - and taken it with her for ransom! A doctor has advised Conrad that if found immediately, there is some hope for re-attachment. But where is Jennifer hiding? Vengeful and furious, Conrad blunders gun first into the underworld of her "blue-film" past, to find her-- and recover his manhood.

Starring Michael Rodrick (Another World, Desolation Angels), renowned cult actress Debbie Rochon (Vampira Magazine's 'Scream Queen of the Decade') and real life porn legend Frank Olivier (as Daddy Mac), NOWHERE MAN probes and cauterizes the preposterousness of love and revenge. This pulp psychodrama is both a nasty little film noir and a black humored treatise on the ever shifting balance of power in human relationships. It is also the most enjoyably disturbing film you'll see in a long time.

Review

An assured 80/20 balance between straight-faced thriller and pitch-black surrealist farce. Scalding performances! --Time Out Chicago

An outstanding film! Dark, twisted and impressive, it stays with you long after it ends. --Film Threat

An edgy sensibility far beyond the pale of Hollywood... A savage noir exploration of the war between the sexes. --Chicago Reader

None.

Two things immediately put this movie at a disadvantage: it's shot on video, and it involves a guy getting his willy removed. So once the good taste snobs and the aesthetic snobs took their whacks at this movie, it didn't have a chance in theaters.

It is, however, a really enjoyable classic-style B-movie, like the work of Anthony Mann or DETOUR (which is featured briefly in the film). Director Tim McCann has made a couple of great under-the-radar movies, and this fits snugly in with those. I recommend checking this out, as well as his previous work REVOLUTION #9 (which also has a Beatles title) and DESOLATION ANGELS (which also deals with a man unhinged by a secret dealing with his girlfriend). The acting all around, in the lead and smaller roles, is surprisingly and uniformly brilliant.

If you can get over yourself, I think you'll like it.

Okay, I feel like I've just been tickled and punched for eighty minutes. This shot on video movie about a great-looking guy who searches for his (...) in the porn underworld deserves a lot of credit for it's intelligence, but most of all for it's unrelenting intensity. Aside from the pulpy aspects, this film has some incredibly honest moments: the relationship between the two leads rings strong and true; this film also has the most intense `rape' scene since the one in that French film "IRREVERSIBLE". Probably not your cup of tea if you like comedies with the word `wedding' in the title. But if you don't mind the cut-rate production, get ready for a very interesting viewing.

Basic biology pretty well kills the premise of the movie. The idea of a man having several days to chase down the woman who cut off his penis and still expecting to have it reattached boggles the imagination. Assuming he didn't bleed out in the first few minutes after decapitation, the wife's claim of "its packed in ice" isn't going to do any good after the first day.

He should have explained that she had 24 hours before her bargaining chip "expired" and became useless.

This no budget hand grenade rips apart the mold of gutless, brainless and disingenuously politically correct products that have become de rigueur in filmmaking today: our main character discovers that his fiancée has appeared in several interracial porno films; our main character calls off the engagement and abuses said fiancée; our main character has his penis cut off and held for ransom. Sound like an exploitation film? Yes, but this one has brains and wit. Probably one of the darkest films you'll ever see, but the pathos is leavened with a twisted humor (catch 'Daddy Mac' rapping, or 'Dr. Johnson' counseling). This being said, 'Nowhere Man' is sure to offend some of you, especially those who specialize in getting moralistic and self righteously worked up over whatever. And many will be turned off by the low production values, and somewhat thin storyline. But these are petty qualms in what is a gutsy little piece of counter-culture.

I thought it was pretty good for a shot-on-video little movie. Only reason I bought this was Scream Queen Debbie Rochon, however this is NOT a horror movie. This is a thriller/comedy. It is much better than you might expect.
