Why do I care so much about this movie? Because it was written by a former coworker at the newspaper, Nick Pullia. I remember when he wrote it. I think that originally it was produced to be a series for television, maybe HBO. But, instead, they re-edited it into a movie called Death and Taxis. Here's the description from Netflix:
How's this for an interesting indie film plotline: an anthology of interconnected stories about how people deal with death -- as seen through the eyes of the angel of death! The stories take place in a taxi that's been driven on the streets of Chicago for 20 years. As the film opens, the taxi is being demolished in a junkyard. When the angel of death shows up and sits inside the cab, the stories begin to unfold through his visions.Also, I remember Nick saying that one of stories in the original series was inspired by something that happened to someone I know. I'm not sure if it made the final cut, but I'm curious to see.
Has anyone out there seen this movie or know when it will be released?
