Storyline

A Neo-Noir film told in three interlacing chapters: Eric is a dead man and he knows it. Death is imminent and he must make amends for his past sins, by killing those who wronged him, no matter the price: A wiseguy willing to do anything to move up in the world must now make the ultimate sacrifice. He must kill his best friend or in turn be killed: An F.B.I.agent turned P.I. is on the trail of a missing girl. In his long search for her he comes face to face with a host of unsavory characters who will lead him to perdition or salvation. Written by Jack Lee

Very Cool Modern Crime Noir with Boston Flavor!
20 October 2015 | by jeremymuellerSee all my reviews

I was fortunate to catch A Life Not to Follow recently at the Action on Film Festival. I'm a fan of crime and genre type films, but sometimes feel like everything has been done before, and more recent crime films sometimes lack originality. A Life Not to Follow really surprised me! It has a lot of the traditional elements for this kind of film, but the characters and the narrative structure are unique. At times it felt like more of a throwback to classic crime Noir of the 40's, but set in the modern take no prisoners violent world of Boston cops and criminals. Great performances from Michael Capozzi, David Grazino, and a haunting Molly Kay whose tragic demise set the characters on their journey to redemption and damnation. Director Christopher Di Nunzio has created a film that's hard to stop talking about, and it stays with you long after it's over.

If you have the chance catch this film at a festival or once it's released. Definitely a film not to miss!
