John (Steve Buscemi) was a gambler. Now he’s an insurance investigator and is sent with a partner Virgil (Romany Malco) to investigate a crash victim. The crash victim is a wheelchair-bound stripper (Emmanuelle Chriqui) and is trying to collect a big claim for her lost stripper wages. Loosely based on Dante’s Inferno, John has to pass through the levels of his personal “hell” by confronting the demons in his life. After escaping Vegas, he’s being tempted along the way, and one by one he meets some very strange characters.

This is a pretty funny little film. This is another NetFlix “Watch Instantly” film, and a nice little indie flick. Steve Buscemi gets to show off his nervous “Don Knott’s” like character that he is so very good at. Constantly afraid of his own shadow and running from situation to situation with a “nanny-like” babysitter Virgil who is really over his head here and trying to keep up with John’s chenanigans all the way along. John has a girlfriend, sort of, who is back in the office with the boss, Peter Dinklage. John’s girl is played hysterically by Sarah Silverman. With all this talent, it has to be funny, but it’s also quirky and very, very strange from time to time! Nothing is quite like it seems, and the only thing we know is that we don’t know anything. It’s a little indie film that’s fun. At least your luck couldn’t possible be a bad as John’s so it’s got that going for you. I bet you don’t like the ending though.
