LAYIN' LOW (1996) [Feature]

USA (MIFF 1997 , International)
Director: Danny Leiner

One of the more accomplished of the recent crop of low budget, independent US films. This deadpan comedy features two feckless losers, Jerry and Christy, as its main characters. Their lives suddenly become much more exciting when Jerry, through a time honoured plot device, unwittingly winds up with a huge quanti­ty of stolen cocaine. It is the ensuing complica­tions that kick the plot into high gear as Jerry goes into hiding after both the cops and, the equally bumbling but much more violent, crimi­nals start combing the city for him.
