Storyline

Set almost entirely inside a dive bar in Manhattan, New York City, known as a "gin joint" or a "watering hole", the regular patrons at Eppine's Bar attempt to cope with the homogenizing world around them as they struggle with personal and political identity as the rest of the city slowly gives into gentrification while the place stands as the last battleground for individualism. Centering on the bartender Sal, and the elderly regular Burnzy, they witness and interact with various people that walk into the bar on this one long day whom include businessmen, college kids, a local bookie, a local cop, a drag queen, an abrasive gambler, annoying tourists, a kind yuppie woman, an alcoholic artist, and many others. Written by Larry B.

A feel good ending rip-off of "The Time Of Your Life"
4 January 2005 | by (Leominster Mass USA) – See all my reviews

"Burnzy's Last Call" is very much a theatre piece put on film. The concept of a group of friends and strangers, all misfits with a story, meeting in a bar goes from Eugene O'Neill's "The Iceman Commeth" to William Saroyan's "The Time Of Your Life" all the way to Burrows/Charleses "Cheers".

Structurally, "Brunzy's" very much matches "Time Of Your Life". Joe is Burnzy. Frances is Nick. Minsky is Krupp. Etc. The feel good ending (Kit Carson doesn't kill anyone) was probably added to make the picture more commercial.

The ensemble acting done by mostly unknown New York actors is yoeman. There are no special effect or plot twist. It is purely slice of life without "Cheers" humor or "Time of Your Life" lyricisim.

An okay indie that is no more than what it is.
