The impulsive Jode (Todd Eckert), incapable of measuring up to his successful brother (Todd Babcock), goes to absurd lengths to find him a new liver in this 2000 black comedy by writer-director Jim Menza. But the plot is only an excuse for a restless display of noir cliches and Rick McCarthy’s acrobatic digicam work, as Jode encounters an array of colorful sickos that includes an Italian mobster and a narcoleptic clown. Eckert communicates a fair amount of seediness and desperation behind his movie-idol facade, and while the ending may be a cop-out, it fails to compromise the film’s delectably warped sensibility. 94 min.
