THE PLOT THUS FAR
A ghost story set in the city of dreams.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Black Limousine” is one of those odd flicks that I watched during the site’s summer downtime. That’s the beauty of catching these flicks that may not have received a theatrical engagement. You get to see what former B-listers do when the roles dry up and they try to be daring. When I try to describe the flick, I could go on and on about how a former composer is trying to make his way through the weird side of Los Angeles. But, that would be doing you a disservice.
David Arquette does his best with the material, but there’s not a lot of meat on the table. Arquette handles the drama well, until we get to him handling the death of his daughter. The sheer bizarre nature that Arquette undertakes in trying to convey human emotion on this one subject is hard to put into words. It’s like trying to get a robot to explain a brain fart to you. I could almost see smoke coming out of Arquette’s ears as he tried to display any sense of grief.
The DVD comes with no special features. The standard definition transfer is pretty sharp, even though there is digital noise in the background. The Dolby track is strong enough, but never puts anything in the back channels. Still, it works. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
