review by
Mike Haberfelner

Christian (Christian Twiste) had hit it hard right before Christmas, as he's lost his job at a time when the job market is notoriously down, and the Federated Collection Agency constantly threatens to send over bill collectors. Now all this would even be not so bad if it wasn't for Christian's constantly nagging newly-wed wife (Lisa Goulian), who wants him to get both a job and a Christmas tree pronto. Christian's only relief in these days is listening to the radio show of Dr. Brenda Dobbs (Tesia Nicoli), a call in psychologist, and he tries time and again to call in, but seems the Federated Collection Agency has hitched his phoneline. Plus, all the water fawcets are leaking, but in a way that seems like a concerted effort to drive him crazy. Eventually, Christian finds relief in murder, first it's a random lady in a park who just happens to go by the name Brenda Dobbs (Syd Stauffer), then a plumber (Austin Lovell) the Federated Collection Agency has sent over, eventually even his wife (though maybe not), and the only reason he's not found out is because the investigating detective (Ryan MacNamara) makes a right mess of it. Eventually, Christian actually goes to a job interview, at the Federated Collection Agency no less, and the interviewer is a splitting image of Dr. Brenda Dobbs (and thus also played by Tesia Nicoli) - but when Christian doesn't get the job due to a mix-up, something ultimately snaps inside him ...


One thing's for sure: Master Pieces sure is a one-of-a-kind movie, inasmuch as it defies clear specification. Some parts of the film play as pure horror, with plenty of gruesome bits as well as utter suspense and excitement in the third act to vouch for that, but then the plot as such also takes a turn to the absurd every now and again, has touches of satire, and plenty of humour ranging from the crude and gross-out to the very refined, changing between all of this deliberately and without warning - and all is carried by self-confidently over-the-top performances that would seem really out of place in any other movie. Whether you'll like it is basically a question of how much you're leaning towards the unusual and weird, but if you do very much so, then this one's definitely for you.
