Nowhere Man is the disturbing 2005 comedy crime drama from writer-director Tim McCann (Desolation Angels, Runaway, The Poker Club). The film deals with a middle class New Yorker named Conrad (Michael Rodrick), typical male with typical male hang ups, who seems to be in a fairly healthy relationship with his long-term girlfriend Jennifer (Debbie Rochon), who he wants to marry and have a family with. One day out of the blue an unmarked video ends up on the doorstep of their shared apartment. But instead of the visions of a creepy voyeur, he sees his girlfriend in an amateur porn tape from many years earlier having sex with a well-endowed porn star named Daddy Mac (Frank Oliver). It is then that his jealously, machismo, ego, violent and sadistic temperament and abusiveness kick into gear and he puts Jennifer through an incredibly humiliating and agonizing ordeal before throwing her out into the street. He shows the tape to all of his friends at a party, voices his opinion about what a worthless cuckold he thinks Jennifer is and subjects her to the most impersonal rape-sex scenario imaginable where he refuses her any form of tenderness. Jennifer is thoroughly devastated, confused and dehumanized - so she sneaks into his bedroom one night and cuts off his penis with a pair of shears and runs away with it.moreless

    The bleak absurdity of its predicaments cries out for a tone of pitch-dark comedy to stave off the unintended laughter that it is virtually certain to elicit.

    The dreadful acting, direction and script make Nowhere Man a nowhere movie.
