    A grim and gritty movie, but sardonically funny at the same time.

    If Blake Edwards wrote a script and then Abel Ferrara directed it, it might look something like Nowhere Man.

    McCann's tone, perversely comic at first, gradually darkens, transforming this into a savage noir exploration of the war between the sexes.
  4. A weird blooper reel, shown as the credits roll, records how often the actors broke into nervous laughter, and this goofy coda undermines any serious intent or honest emotion in the previous, tedious 80 minutes.
  5. The bleak absurdity of its predicaments cries out for a tone of pitch-dark comedy to stave off the unintended laughter that it is virtually certain to elicit.
  6. 20
    The result is an unpleasant slog to an unrewarding conclusion that feels far longer than it is.
  7. 0
    The dreadful acting, direction and script make Nowhere Man a nowhere movie.

    You could do alot worse with your movie time. It's music video look will try admirably try to dissuade you, but not long after the movie You could do alot worse with your movie time. It's music video look will try admirably try to dissuade you, but not long after the movie begins you'll see something in the film that may allow you to hold on until the end - or close to it, anyway. The creators wisely procrastinate in revealing what the main character is seeking from the lady. Had they revealed it a second too soon, it would have been a wrap. But even after the quarry is so crudly revealed, my wife and I couldn't help but wait to see where the film was going to take us. Ultimately, I wasn't as dissappointed with the ending as I was stymied. But even through my cloud of confusion, it wasn't difficult to see that the ending was a huge cop out. Thanks!! Expand

    Racism, ugly, negative and absolutely meaningless movie.
