Tagline: You wont know who to trust. What to believe. Or where to turn.
Plot: Crooks, cons and colorful characters - this family-themed crime film has them in spades. The directorial debut of Francis Ford Coppola's nephew Christopher, "Deadfall" assembles a group of actors including Nicolas Cage (the director's brother) and, in a dual role, James Coburn. It also features cameos by Peter Fonda, Talia Shire (the director's aunt), and Charlie Sheen.
After New Yorker Joe Donan learns of his confidence-man father's death, he follows a trail of clues and red herrings to sunny Santa Monica, CA. There, he meets his estranged Uncle Lou, falls prey to numerous scams, and runs afoul of a psychotic mobster and his sexy squeeze.
With its bouncy soundtrack, unexpected twists, and unpredictable comedy, "Deadfall" rises to become something that can only be described as cult noir.
