“Trouble Is My Business has a strong noir look and structure that will appeal to veteran film noir fans while the action and comedic elements could win over less-seasoned audiences. Such a balancing act is hard to pull off, but Konkle and company have done a masterful job. Trouble Is My Business is a marvelous independent film that deserves a wide audience…” – The Dark Pages, Andy Wolverton

Starring Vernon Wells (Mad Max 2 The Road Warrior, Commando) Brittney Powell (Xena, Airborne) Tom Konkle (Baskets, Noise In The Middle), Ben Pace, Jordana Capra and Steve Tom.

“Konkle is a particularly strong lead, containing all the wit, charm and ruggedness you could want for a private dick, and engaging in some fantastically theatrical banter with almost all of the characters. He gets ruffed up along the way by an absolutely sterling performance from Vernon Wells as Detective Tate, whose long arm of the law stretches far and wide. Along with Konkle in most scenes is the excellent Brittney Powell who commands so many of the frames she is in as Jennifer.” – Chris Olson, UK FILM REVIEW

“…using every movie-making trick imaginable, Trouble is to film noir what Once Upon a Time in the West was to the western: the final word. With classic elements, a fresh cast, and painstaking detail, Konkle has created a world both familiar and new. Twists, betrayal, and mystery are finely intertwined with the wit, violence, and eventuality of the genre.” Kevin Ranson, Rotten Tomatoes

“a stylish film noir set in a backdrop of 1940’s Los Angeles, with great dialogue performed by some very capable actors…” – Screen Critix

“Despite being shot on a low budget, it does a remarkable job at capturing a gritty noir atmosphere. It has all the ingredients necessary to make it work well, including femme fatales, dark characters, and disreputable policemen. Konkle appears to have done his homework in capturing the tone and look of a film noir, right down to the outfits that characters wear. The action, while minimal, is still compelling with great dialogue and excellent one-liners. an entertaining throwback. For those needing a getaway from movies that contain overwhelming special effects and explosions, Trouble is My Business is a perfect remedy… it’s still a pleasure to watch and a good remembrance of what films once were.” – David Steigman,The Digital Bits

“To me this is mostly a story of the gumshoe’s struggle between his romanticism and the cynicism brought on by his experience. In the end, one must prevail.” – Stomagazine

“Konkle stars in the sort of role that back in the ’40s and ’50s belonged to the likes of Humphrey Bogart, Robert Mitchum, Dick Powell, and Alan Ladd. As the femme fatale, Brittney Powell is supposed to evoke memories of Jane Greer, Lizabeth Scott, Lauren Bacall, and Claire Trevor. ‘Trouble Is My Business’: Humorous film noir homage evokes memories of ‘The Maltese Falcon’ & ‘Touch of Evil’” – Tim Cogshell, Alt-Film Guide, Rotten Tomatoes

This is pure homage to the stories of Raymond Chandler, Mickey Spillane, Dashiell Hammett, Cornell Woolrich, Ross MacDonald, and the films that showcased them. The shades of light and shadow onscreen are right on the money. Cinematography is beautiful…Brittney Powell nails her performance and the supporting cast are exactly right. Vernon Wells, best known for playing the mohawk sporting biker Wez in The Road Warrior, is 72 now and chews the scenery as a corrupt cop with a satisfying balance of craggy faced menace and evil glee…if you’ve got a rainy afternoon when you’re laying low, a good stiff belt of bathtub gin, and a love for those old crime dramas, this feature will please you immensely. Trouble is My Business, and business is pretty damn good.” – Film Threat

“Sayings like “being a flat tire” and dead-pan one liners, fill the sound space and brought a grin to my face. Generally speaking, Tom Konkle and Brittney Powell have penned an excellent script and Konkle himself, has done some excellent work directing it. It’s all here for lovers of this type of movie and more to the point, it’s all here even if you’re not a genre fan. Konkle and Powell’s title helps raise that bar a little higher, and reduce the stigma in the process. This was a film I am glad I got to see. If this write-up helps gets even one more set of eyes viewing, it was all worth it. Bottom line? This is a fun, visually interesting movie. Congrats to the cast and crew for a job well… well done.” – Indy Red

“The darkened urban streets and grimly lit office are all there alongside the tumblers of whisky and snappy dialogue. Even the font used on the opening credits smacks of ’40s noir. Tonally there is a huge amount for audiences to be immersed in with this movie and great effort has been put into the sublime mise en scéne. ” –  CHRIS OLSON, UK FILM REVIEW

FANDANGONOW Here,

“Tom Konkle and Brittney Powell set out to tell us a good story. They’ve succeeded. They set out to bring a style only celebrated by the hard core, to the masses. Again, anyone who watches will probably agree… they’ve succeeded. “Trouble Is My Business” is a witty, predictable – in a good way – romp that celebrates all those serialized shows and movies your grandparents probably loved to watch. Brought forth in a way that can be appreciated by both newcomers to the genre, and old lovers alike. This is the style that gave us those awesome one line, dead pan remarks so many of us quote unknowingly. And this is a great film to remind – or introduce – the genre in general.” – Reel Romp

“The phrase “they don’t make them like this anymore” could not be more apt for Konkle’s film, co-written with Powell. It’s a genre movie that completely dedicates itself to the form and reaps the benefits for its boldness. Fans of the masters of cinema will be in their absolute element, ricocheting against the costumes, sets, characters and more as the story unwinds into a classic caper with all the trimmings” – Chris Olson, UK FILM REVIEW

VUDU Here ,

“Trouble Is My Business” is a showy, comic style detective story spanning the entire range of noir type films. From the crooked police force of the old days, to the straight up dead pan – and cliche – performances you would expect from this type of movie. I write this all in the best possible way because put quite simply, this was a fun title to watch. One of those unusual micro budget movies that is actually done well.” – Reel Romp

“Maybe it’s just “plain old” talent. Whatever the case, and I happen to think it’s a little of both, everyone compliments one and other scene after scene. This film plays itself the way it’s meant to play thanks to everyone in front of the camera, and by no means do the folks behind the camera slack in any way either. This is a polished film. No question. The set design? The props and near perfect underscore? All stellar – but the reality is that these things would mean nothing, if not for the talent in front of the camera.” – Reel Romp

SYNOPSIS:
Corrupt cops rule the world of 1947 Los Angeles, everything should be sunny, but the smog creates a fog, a haze that permeates not just the lungs, but the psyches.

Private eye Roland Drake cracks cases and romances femme fatales in 1940’s Los Angeles while corrupt cops rule the underworld of the city and moral lines are anything but black and white. A dark, hard-boiled tale of love and betrayal, told in the classic style of film noir. Drake has fallen on hard times in a harsh world. He has been evicted from his office and disgraced by a missing persons case. Ruined in the public eye and with the police. it seems like it’s all over for Roland Drake. Then, redemption walks in – with curves. The owner of those curves is a sexy, dark haired beauty named Katherine Montemar. She wants his help. The chemistry is immediate and her concern for the disappearance of her family members pulls him into her case – and into bed. He wakes up to her missing too, and a pool of blood where she used to be. After a nervous encounter, the equally skilled but unscrupulous Lew MacDonald, he is confronted by Katherine’s blonde sister, Jennifer. She’s a beautiful femme fatale who knows more than she should about everything and blackmails him into helping her. Their destiny becomes entwined in the dark descent that leads them on a hunt for a priceless gem and information peeled back to revel a twisted reality. Dogged by the corrupt police in the form of Detective Tate, Drake must navigate a sinister world of lies, betrayal, and murder with the menagerie of seedy characters. Drake might not be able to tell right from wrong anymore in a doomed love story, which could destroy him, Jennifer, and bury all the mysteries forever.

    Wow this is a great movie and is going to be a true epic film for a very long time.
    For screenwriters who come across this, take the following pointers on board:

    distinction and this film has all of that and alot more.
    Trouble Is My Business is starring Tom Konkle,Brittney Powell
    This neo noir film is going to be one of the classic movie of all
    times that will continue to live with humanity,thoughout every generation
    and they will all say, “Oh that was 10 out of 10,with two thumbs up”..
    When you watch this film you will know the world inside of being
    a private eye and the smarts that goes along with it,
    in fact smartness is the only thing that can keep them alive in most cases.
    I’ve seen this film several times, and want to be captured by its spell every time.
    I enjoyed this film and adore all things about film noirs and
    neo noirs and bow down in awe to the film’s wonderful cast.
    Writers/Actors: Tom Konkle,Brittney Powell are truly great in this film together.
    Director:Tom Konkle is a great director,the camera shows just
    how emotional the life of a detective real is.
    Detective Roland Drake(Tom Konkle) falls for two sisters from the Montemar family.
    One woman is dead and the other wants to kill him.
    Families will talk about the differences between movies made within
    the last few years and movies of the 1940s like The Big Sleep and other film noirs.
    This neo film is a marvel of convoluted, unexplained plot threads
    that miraculously add up to one of the great pleasures of cinema.
    Usually categorized under the film noir umbrella for its shadowy photography and emphasis on the menace of the underworld,”Trouble Is My Business” mixes its cynicism with enough dry humor to almost lend it a sense of optimism.
    The bad guys go down and the detective gets the girl,even if it’s not entirely clear whether she’s trustworthy.
    The real treat is Tom Konkle,who seems game to play tough guy but also self-deprecating role.
    A true wonderful actor.The movie is a great example of the importance of emphasis
    and editing with a great story line. “Trouble Is My Business”
    Passion, murder, and betrayal.Just another day at the office
    is a must see either on the big screen or on dvd.
    You will not be disappointed and you will want more after seeing this film…
    I recommend to all to buy this film and place it next
