Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead

Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead

Gary Fleder (1995)

18 Certificate
Friday 1:55am - 3:55am Sky Cinema Select


Our Score
The comparisons to Quentin Tarantino's work are inevitable, but this hip, witty take on the gangster movie marked out director Gary Fleder as an individual talent to watch. Andy Garcia plays a retired mobster who is called in by his ailing former boss, Christopher Walken, to carry out one more job. When it goes badly wrong, Garcia and his associates find themselves on the hit list. The vivid splashes of violence are ably handled by Fleder, but he also delights in the rich dialogue of his oddball collection of characters. They are warmly brought to life by an eclectic cast that includes William Forsythe, Steve Buscemi, Christopher Lloyd and Treat Williams, who gives a career-reviving performance as an ex-boxer who works out on the corpses at a funeral parlour.


A hard-up reformed crook agrees to pay off his debts by doing one last job for his psychotic former boss. He reunites with a motley group of one-time criminals, but unfortunately they botch the assignment and a hitman is sent to finish them off. Thriller, starring Andy Garcia, Christopher Walken, Treat Williams, Gabrielle Anwar and Steve Buscemi.
