A SHOCK TO THE SYSTEM

Jan Egelson, USA, 1990, Shout! Factory, Arthouse

“Pleasantly macabre, an offbeat comedy about a high-rolling psychotic played with nasty savoir-faire.” - Washington Post

CLIMBING THE CORPORATE LADDER CAN BE MURDER.

Madison Avenue executive Graham Marshall (Michael Caine, best known as “Hoagie” in JAWS 4) has paid his dues. A talented and devoted worker, he’s suffered through mounting bills and a nagging wife, all with one thing to look forward to: a well-deserved promotion. But when the promotion is given to a loud-mouthed yuppie associate instead, Graham unleashes his rage on an overly aggressive panhandler, who he accidentally kills by pushing him into the path of an oncoming subway train. He re-thinks his problems with an entirely new solution. First, he arranges an “accident” for his annoying wife. Then he creates another “mishap” for his boss. It seems like the world is once more Graham’s oyster… but a prying police detective may change all that.
