Sure, Derwin Smalls is a bit of an outcast . . . a hapless oddball, socially awkward, and flailing as a mechanic in a second-rate cereal factory . . . but with a little luck, he might just make it as a serial killer!
Crossing the line from fascination and fantasy to actually intending to kill, is made less daunting by a daily existence that regularly pushes our peculiar protagonist to the brink, in this Coen Brothers-style mix of comedy and drama, complete with a richly eccentric lead, a procession of curious characters and unusual events, and an undeniably dark premise. The real question is how, or for that matter if, one can possibly hope to succeed in such a fiendish endeavor, when absolutely nothing they ever do seems to go right.
