Plot – Spoilers:
At one point in his life, Pete fancied himself an actor on the stage. Right now though, the regret of unfulfilled ambitions is the least of his concerns. His girlfriend just dumped him when he asked her to marry him. He’s bad at his sales job and has been given a 20 day ultimatum to straighten things. And his lonely Dad feels he doesn’t give him enough of his time and presence. As Pete sits alone in his darkened room, he looks less a victim and more a potential perpetrator. But there’s a knock on the door that will change this.

The first few minutes of the interaction between Pete and the visitor, who is exasperatingly polite, is pure terror. This is possibly the most eerie, politeness has been depicted in cinema.

Shot in black & white with a torch lighting up the claustrophobia, Tin Can Man appears to throw a few odes to at least a couple of movies – Man Bites Dog and 100 Years of Adolf Hitler.
