Some impressive if uneven early work,
13 December 2012 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Very early work from one of our best filmmakers.

This 23 minute short is in many ways an early sketchpad for 'Hard Eight', Anderson's amazing first feature.

The film is very simple – 3 different conversations at a diner outside Vegas, but shot, written and edited creatively, with good performances by Philip Baker Hall and Miguel Ferrer.

Anderson's trademark dialogue feels a little more arch and stiff here, a little more a young writer doing his riff on David Mamet, but it's good enough to show real talent, and Anderson's ability to create dialogue and characters that are both stylized and believable, bigger than life but still real would go on to become a key to his unique voice.
