I went into this hoping for a dark comedy. What I got was a very unfunny, unfocused, mess of a movie. "Tinseltown" was originally written as a play, and unfortunately it shows. The film is very claustrophobic, with long boring dialogs throughout. The bickering in front of the police station was squirm inducing. Ron Perlman does the best job early on, as the menacing pseudo manager of a storage facility that is home to a bunch of quirky "street people". The movie never takes off, and fails to impress as "black comedy". The idea of featuring a serial kill in your film sounds a lot better in print, than it translates to the screen. A disappointment. - MERK
