Just Screened It For Possible Phoenix Film Festival Submission
7 January 2009 | by (South Of Hell (Phoenix)) – See all my reviews

A truly original premise whereupon a centralized storyline of two homeless gentlemen, led by wonderfully acted Barry Primus (Righteous Kill, 15 Minutes) and Charles Robinson (NBC's Night Court, Set It Off) during a 24 hour period in Hollywood and their struggles for cafeteria-style food, clean laundry and discrimination after being given a $20 bill by a businessman. The story is interlaced with operatic performances of the cast and background characters giving the film a very surreal quality not found too much in recent memory. Debra Jo Rupp (That 70s Show) and Steve Guttenberg (Cocoon, Police Academy series) are just among the few in this wonderfully casted ensemble. The score magnificent and if it weren't for the Duran Duran-type 80s music video effects that detract from the viewing experience, this film would be a perfect gem. Otherwise, a can't miss, a true original
