Jimmy the Saint’s business is videotaping the terminally-ill, so that they will be around to give ‘Afterlife Advice’ to their survivors. He hasn’t been doing too well lately and has had to turn to loan-sharks to accomodate his failing business, as well as his expensive personal tastes. When an evil gangster-overlord buys up his note and demands a favor of Jimmy, in exchange for the interest that he can’t afford, Jimmy capitulates. Jimmy is to scare someone for the gangster-overlord–really rough them up. Without giving too much away (spoiler), the scene goes down badly and Jimmy and his crew all end up with contracts on their heads for their trouble.

Film Review

"Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead" is one of the many films that jumped on the bandwagon of 'hip' 90s crime/pulp flicks after Quentin Tarantino had created a new style in crime cinema with his cult gems "Reservoir Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction". Tarantino, of course, uses more influences from other films than any other director of his fame, so it is more than legitimate to use him as an influence. The vast amount of Pulp Fiction-wannabes that have emerged ever since the mid-90s up, however, can quickly become annoying. However, "Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead" can not yet really be blamed fore being one of many films that (annoyingly) attempt to seem like Tarantino flicks, as the film was released in 1995, when the overload of films of the kind was still in its early days. The film actually has many qualities. The film is arguably most recommendable for its good cast. Andy Garcia fits perfectly in the leading role of &#…

What can I say? A decade since I first discovered this gem and a fantastic rewatch just put me in mind to back it up with these words.This film will always remain in my top ten – a beautiful gangster fantasy full of scintillating dialogue, great characters, great acting, pathos, tragedy and ultimately, morality.It's more of a meditation on life and death and what we do in-between the bookends that makes us truly human. Or not, in the case of Treat William's maniacal and hysterical character.If you haven't seen this, do your brain a favour and engage with this rewarding piece of film-making. If you have seen it, recommend it to a friend, in fact, DEMAND they watch this before they die. Give it a name.Yes it's violent, yes it's comic-book in parts but never excessively so in either way and only ever done so to tell the tale the way it should be.God bless Jimmy The Saint. Boat drinks all round.

While the movie itself is well-constructed, the characters universally aptly portrayed, and the atmosphere quite spectacular, there are a few things that I always warn friends about when approaching this movie.First of all, the characters ARE caricatures. In more than one case, a character is barely more than a sketch, without so much as a name. The writer clearly had ideas for how he wanted to personify these concepts, and the actors did fantastic work with them, but all you need to do is go to the 'cast and crew' page and look at the NAMES of the characters to understand more than one role that's played in the movie itself.Secondly, and far more annoying, is the attempt to create an atmosphere of authenticity by making up something that's supposed to be 'prison slang'. It happens more than once – some phrase that you've never heard before is used, the old man narrating the story pauses, we're brought crashing back to the wraparound story as the old ma…
