Storyline

Tweek City is a week in the life of Bill, a potentially closeted, half-Latino, small-time speed dealer in San Francisco's Mission District. Bill is stuck on an endless walk from one empty experience to the next. Only Bill's friend Jerm has the ability to connect and ground him in reality. When Jerm makes an ill-advised stage dive, Bill plunges into a downward spiral that takes him on a nocturnal journey through the streets of San Francisco and ultimately down to Los Angeles where he crashes his high school sweetheart's wedding. From his sleep-deprived, hallucinogenic state, Bill fails miserably in a desperate attempt to reconnect with his first and only love. With nowhere else to go, Bill jacks a car and ends up at the deserted drive-in theater of his childhood where he is forced to confront the ghosts that he had tried to leave behind.

An Extremely good Indie Film
4 January 2007 | by (Ft. Lauderdale, Fl.) – See all my reviews

I picked up the DVD at my local BB store as I always look for 'single copy' films on the shelves. Quite often I'll find a jewel amongst the dust...and "Tweek City" turned out to be quite an unexpected good indie feature. The acting was WAY above par. The better than good photography and editing (saving 86 minutes of the original 120) was just enough to hold my interest. It's a dark, dank story lived mostly true-life from the writer/director, but so honest about the low-life of drug-dealing/using...it almost rose to the level of a real-life documentary. It's not the kind of movie one rents to enjoy, but to spend an hour and a half living someone else's life and the horrors of drug induced paranoia can bring. I worked many years in drug rehab and this is one of the most convincing portrayals I've seen in several years. I'm sorry that my previous critics on this page were not entertained, but I was absorbed from the first frame to the last and highly recommend it to Indie fans as myself!
