Did You Know?


The role of Vinny the Face was originally written as Vinny Phats. A few days before production, actor Rodger Sorensen underwent chemo-therapy for a tumor on his head. His face was visibly altered as a result, so the name of his character was changed. Fortunately, Mr. Sorensen recovered, but his face healed before production was complete. He wore make-up prosthetics for the second half of the shoot. See more »

Unique and Inventive
5 September 2002 | by (Culver City, CA) – See all my reviews

I stumbled across this film at a film festival a while back and was absolutely blown away. Here was a film that seemlessly integrated the aspects of the film noir and musical genres with invigorating and entertaining results. The experience of viewing "Funky Town" is a unique one. It tells a well worn story but in a way that feels totally fresh and unique. I usually hate musicals, but I was impressed at how the filmmakers used music to help flesh out their characters and tell their story more effectively. Try and get ahold of a copy if you can. It will remind you of the ways a movie can sneak up on you and surprise you with its inventiveness.
