John LaFlamboy in The Art of Pain

The Art of Pain

2008 NR

Uninspired artist Jack (Anders Erickson) is a living out a robotic existence working at a movie theater until new employee Marcus (John LaFlamboy), a would-be ninja in training, becomes obsessed with turning Jack into a great painter through the power of pain. To get him back on track, Marcus beds Jack's girlfriend and kills his geeky best buddy, motivating Jack to paint like a madman ... while being "guided" by one in this imaginative indie tale.
