Storyline

The Invisible Life of Thomas Lynch' is a dark comedy about a lonely small time hit man. Shot documentary style, the film reveals a pathetically empty and misguided man and the callousness of the film makers who just want to get the shots, unmoved by torture and murder. The contradiction between personal life and job, and the apathy of the people making the documentary reflects satirically the dispassion of the media Written by Trey Pleasance

First Screening
30 June 2009 | by CremeFraicheSee all my reviews

I just saw a first screening of the movie and it is ground breaking. An emotional roller coaster with a deep moral debate. How far will people let the media or reality TV go before turning away ? Is there a limit to what is acceptable? Amazing acting which gave me goose bumps. The guy who plays the character of Frank Richie is a discovery for me but in the lead of Oscar winning actors. We love to hate Lisa Hammer. James Merendino is angry and this movie is a testament to his anger. The violence is reminiscent of a Tarentino but the message is deep and this movie had to be done. This is a movie you can't leave at the theater, it stays with you and will stay with you for a long time.
