Suicidal accountant Holloman forms a strange relationship with happy-go-lucky salesman Lawrence. As he tries to teach Holloman to stay positive and turn his life around, Lawrence's own life begins to crumble.
The questions the film posits about fate and destiny and whether they can be changed by disposition are intriguing, but the one-note nature of the leading characters distracts from any subtler, and therefore more rewarding, character development.
More anti-human than Antichrist, Matthew Kowalchuck's beyond-black comedy Lawrence & Holloman asks us to revel in the largely-unsuccessful emotional torture of a jerk by a sociopath. And they said cinema had run out of heroes.
