Movie Review: BREATHLESS (Blu-ray+DVD Combo Pack)
BREATHLESS is a dark comedy that takes place in a trailer out in the middle of nowhere, Texas with an amazing cast that includes Gina Gershon, Kelli Giddish, Val Kilmer, Ray Liotta and Wayne Duvall. This movie is awesome!
This amazing small cast that has been assembled for this cool little comedy makes it such a fun watch. Gershon and Giddish play two redneck type girlfriends, Lorna and Tiny, who accidentally kill Lorna’s husband Dale, played by Kilmer. Let me tell you, Kilmer isn’t in this movie for too long but he leaves his mark and is freaking hilarious with what screen time he’s given! Oh and there’s $100 grand hidden somewhere in or around the trailer because Dale just robbed a bank!
The two girlfriends have to get creative in covering up the accidental murder and this becomes a complete mess for the two, especially when the local Sheriff played by Liotta, shows up unexpectedly so, you think the Sheriff is keeping an eye on Dale but there’s a lot more going on here! The two girls go into panic mode that makes them both a little paranoid and eventually we discover there’s a little more going on here!
Without spoiling everything, let’s just say there’s plenty of double-crossing, twists, turns and even blood, oh and that blender, we can’t forget the blender! To me, Gershon and Giddish make an awesome comedy team. I mean these two just continuously play off of each other throughout the movie and it’s lots of fun watching them. They remind me of classic comedy duos like Abbott and Costello and even Lucy and Ethel. When you top that off with Val Kilmer’s quick and prefect performance and that blender, it makes this movie an instant cult classic!
Writer/Director Jesse Bagart has put together a really fun movie that lots of people will really get a kick out of! The story is fun and all of the characters are funny! It looks like they had a lot of fun making this little gem that leaves Breathless down as one of my new favorites!
Bottom line is, this Breathless [Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack] comes highly recommended! This movie was such a blast! Be sure to check this one out or better yet, buy it when it releases on Tuesday, August 14th.
