Romulus Ledbetter: "Swarms of moth-seraphs howl in my skull. Lies vex them."


Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. Paranoid schizophrenic Romulus Ledbetter (Samuel L. Jackson) lives in a cave in New York's Inwood Park.
2. He believes that the root of all evil dwells at the top of the Chrysler Building, emitting rays that control the world.
3. He has a host of moth-like angels swarming in his head.
4. The dead body frozen in a tree outside his cave is no hallucination
5. Gripping but highly improbable plot follows, as Ledbetter searches for answers.

This is one of Jackson's finest performances, in an over-looked murder/fantasy movie that lacks a great plot, but makes up for it with great acting and vivid imagery.

If you can ignore the impossible and unlikely bits, this is a good rental for fans of the unusual.
