Love and Happiness (1995)

Director– Jordan Alan
Writers– Jordan Alan, Charlie Mattera

Synopsis–

Alan’s second feature, the chronicle of a Los Angeles hit man, Love and Happiness, allowed this young director to really come into his own.  A highly creative and vibrant piece of work, Love and Happiness experiments with an improvisational framework that  “…maintains a break-neck momentum with an inventiveness that rivets viewer attention” (Daily Variety)
