It's in theaters. Stars Jude law and Forrest Whitaker.
Seems like a delightfully twisted little film.
The idea is that people buy artificial organs to save their lives from whatever heinous affliction concerns them. But the organs are quite expensive and therefore, in The American Way, you can purchase and have said organ installed on credit! WOOHOO!
But, people fall into arrears as always and the lending company sends the debt to collections. Now, you would think that something that is critical to the life of the borrower cannot be repossessed, it just goes against basic respect for the sanctity of life. But, then again, we are talking about banks here. Also, as with any given movie, you have to suspend belief in reality otherwise a plot about a lawyer suing heart transplant patients for the value of their organs doesn't seem nearly as interesting as it is morbid.
Anyway, it's getting mixed reviews. There are very few "middle of the road" reviews on this one. People either love it or they blast it for being "pedestrian" of "blase" even though I don't think they know what those words mean.
So, anybody see it yet? I might go see it this weekend.
