I was lucky enough to catch "What Happened to Pete?" when it aired on
a few years back. It remains one of my favorite short films to this day.
you've seen "Tree's Lounge," you know Steve Buscemi is a phenomenal
director. "What Happened to Pete?" plays like a sketch version of the bar
scenes in "Tree's Lounge." Its a deceivingly simple little film, with a
brilliant comedic performance by Buscemi. (Mark Boone Junior and Seymour
Cassel are wonderfully understated.) I adore Buscemi's choice of music-
Brenda Lee's "Emotion" and George Jones's "When the Grass Grows Over Me"
underscore the movie's tone perfectly. The film culminates with a truly
surprising twist, (a rarity for shorts.) What I admire most about "What
Happened to Pete?" is the way it manages to capture, (in a few short
minutes), the dank grain and subdued despair of life in your average bar.
