Hodgepodge may not be the word writer-director John Herzfeld would use to describe his quirky 1996 black comedy, but hodgepodge it is. And that's not all bad. There are too many characters, but some are a lot of fun. The tone shifts, from graphic murder to wig-flipping farce, are too extreme, but much of it works. Danny Aiello (pictured) and James Spader star (Cinemax Wednesday at 10 p.m.).
