I really wasn't prepared for this one.
The son of a contract killer: a contract killer, has a change of heart. He goes to see a shrink, and meets a young woman in the waiting room whom he falls for, but he already has a wife and kid. He wants to stop killing, but his dad gives him a new job (IOW a person to kill)... and it's his shrink.
It might be a premise set for action, but it turns out to be mostly talk. A lot of existential stuff. Not so heavy; more slice of life stuff. The movie feels melancholy more than dark, and heartfelt in authenticity. It ends so simply, but it's not an all bad, and not all a good ending either...
But it was unexpectedly direct! And complicated... in a simple and easily understandable way. Props William H. Macy and Neve Campbell on really doing something special here. Well done. Donald Sutherland too.
