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 admirable effort
15 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The concept of a man at the absolute low point of his life where he has no one to go is cliché. The idea where he's tripping on speed so bad that he can't even trust his own mind is an intriguing idea. The latter was not executed well enough to make the idea of this movie good. Execution is the downfall of this movie. The shots were completely unmotivated, inconsistent, and unacceptable. There were motivated, redeeming shots, but they weren't edited in very well. When I watched it, everyone in the room was laughing hysterically at how ridiculous this movie was. If this is supposed to be a deep movie, why does a guy get a dump taken on his chest? Why does an old man pretend to fire four different guns at a cat? And how is a moped not supposed to make you laugh? However, plot, shots, editing aside, this movie has one redeeming quality. I would say that the production design is executed well enough that we believe the environment (except the concert and party). It may sound harsh, but the truth is that Tweek City is a terrible movie. The few tidbits of goodness are not enough to hold the movie together. I think doing a feature film was overshooting. Eric should have made a short and done it well opposed to making a long mess that people were shouting out to see end.
