Expert Review The Dark Backward - DVD Review
By: Keith Breese DVD Reviews
Published on: 8/23/2007 4:54 AM
Writer/director Adam Rifkin has had an odd Hollywood career. While he's best known for penning late-'90s kid-friendly fare like Mouse Hunt and the surprisingly dark Small Soldiers, Rifkin has been in the business since the late-'80s and has written and directed everything from a sex comedy spoof (The Invisible Maniac) to a gritty urban crime flick (Night at the Golden Eagle). Despite his wandering interests, all of Rifkin's material has a goofy, edgy side. And he's written (and directed) nothing edgier or kookier than 1991's The Dark Backward. Rifkin wrote the film when he was 19 and probably had it sitting in his proverbial "back pocket" just waiting for the day he had enough clout and experience to get it the full review

Plot Summary
Judd Nelson is Marty Malt, a geeky garbage man who moonlights as a stand-up comic. Sadly, Marty Malt's career in comedy hasn't brought him much success but when he develops a rare deformity, it might give him the extra edge he needs to be a main attraction.
