Nothing special about the DVD. The audio is two-channel Dolby and the transfer is letterboxed but not enhanced for 16x9 TVs. Extra features are limited to a trailer and cast and crew bios, although there is an audio commentary by the director.
Some kind of group of criminals work with an important LAPD cop, the one who fired Fritz Brown, the hero, to embezzle a lot of welfare money into their pockets with fake welfare cases. One of their low rank associates, Fat Dog, burns one of their cover-up bars, steals their ledgers and a big chunk of that embezzled money. He is on the run and he hires the PI to look after his sister. He will eventually get killed.
But The ugliest part of it is that the 17 year old sister is the lover of the real boss of the little maffia ring. But it will be discovered that she is in fact his daughter. This last detail is what makes this story unbearable. The fact that the man is a Jew determines the break away attitude of Fat Dog. But the sister, when she finally knows the truth, decides to stick with her father-lover.
The PI will eventually get his vengeance against the LAPD cop-VIP, and his hands on Fat Dog's stolen money. But the vision of the world given here is absolutely sickening. I will yet regret the antisemitism that lurks behind the film that in part takes place in Venice, a place that is also known as the locale of American History X, another story about antisemitism and neo-nazi leagues. Fat Dog is on that line with Hitler's picture well positioned in his shack. We thus have the impression we are entering a world that is purely created by Hollywood and we do not know whether we are in the real world or not.
This gives the strange impression that we are living in a virtual world wirth Hollywood's productions and that this virtual world has a loose connection with the real world. But is it really the case ? We cannot know nor decide.
