Bum Rap Shows What Indie Film-making Is All About
11 August 2005 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

Writer/director Danny Irom, working with the vastly underrated and underutilized Craig Wasson has created a dark comedy about a man facing his mortality, that has the courage to venture into territory Hollywood studios should only have the stones to tread. Shot on location in New York City (the only place this film could have been filmed), Wasson's performance is a tour-de-force that deserves a much wider viewing than this little gem has ever received. What could have been incredibly maudlin and depressing material, in the hands of Messrs. Irom and Wasson, becomes an almost lyrical journey with the audience joining the protagonist's search to find some meaning in his life. Mr. Iron is a talent who deserves more recognition than ADing on feature films and television series offers. Kudos also to Irom for utilizing Wasson's musical talents. Together, their talents make Bum Rap one of those rare films that true lovers of the art really need to see.
