Red Diaper Baby, and/or his office-place comedy Haiku Tunnel, the good news is that Josh Kornbluth is back with another witty, funny, self-deprecating look at himself and his life -- LOVE & TAXES -- in which it comes out that the poor schmuck has not bothered to file or pay income tax for seven years. (Well, you know these "artist" types....)
The even-better news is that Josh's brother Jacob Kornbluth, shown below, right (with Robert Reich, who has a juicy little role in the film), is also back to direct and take the movie from mere monologue (where it begins) into dramatic reenactment, fantasy and frolic -- with the accent clearly on the latter.
To that end, he must interact with financial accountants, trustworthy and not so (the smartest/scariest of these is brought to fine life in a whip-smart performance by Helen Shumaker, below).
Abramorama and running a nicely-paced 90 minutes -- opens tomorrow, Friday, March 3, in New York City at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema, and on Friday, March 10, in the L.A. area at Laemmle's Noho 7 and the Art Theater in Long Beach.
