A couple of years back, my partner and i watched a movie that we really liked about car salesmen, but i can’t remember the title for the life of me. It was a fairly low budget affair, but (as someone who sold cars for a year in my younger days) i thought it did a pretty great job of showing some of the pressure and tactics of the sales floor.
I can’t remember the whole plot, but i remember that one of the salesmen was in financial trouble, and was being pressured by criminals of some sort, and had to help them hold up the dealership, or something similar. There was also an incident where one of the salesmen got left on the side of the road (or something) without his pants after a woman on a test drive tried to seduce him.
Anyway, i know that’s a bit vague, but if someone has seen the movie i’m sure they’ll recognize it, even if my fuzzy memory has got some of the details wrong. A search of IMDB using keywords like “car salesman” has proved fruitless, but i know the Dope will be able to pick me up.
It’s been a while since i saw it, but i remember liking it a lot, and now i’m going to get it out again. I’m amazed that i didn’t remember Daniel Benzali, because i like him a lot, and that would have allowed me to find it straight away.
