WRITER / DIRECTOR
After serving time for attempted murder of District Attorney, disgraced former cop Joe Denton returns home looking for redemption. An embarrassment to his parents, abandoned by his ex-wife, it seems as if things can't get much worse. But the Joe finds himself trapped in the mess he left behind, in the cross fire between a crooked sheriff, the vengeful DA, and a mafia kingpin who knows too much.
Delightfully suspenseful, blackly comic, "Small Crimes" follows Joe's desperate and misguided attempts to extract himself from this nightmare, only to to dig himself into a deeper - and bloodier - hole.
“A pulpy slice of pie from deep in the heart of American nowhere”
“The film ties together in such a perfect bow”
“The genre elements in Small Crimes are very strong: the dark country roads, the sense of evil lurking in the shadows, threatening to engulf innocence”
Sheila O'Malley, Roger Egbert
