Storyline

It's midnight at The Court, a dirty ashtray of a rock club, and the tension is high. Music is blaring, beer is flowing and singer Keith Waters is about to get decked. "You didn't have to bail me out of jail" he says right before getting slammed with a jaw crushing punch from lead guitarist Jay Styles. Seconds later they are on stage giving a mind-blowing live performance that lands their band a record deal. Jay has sacrificed everything for this moment and is about to learn the hard way that it can truly take a lifetime to become an overnight sensation. A reporter gets the story about his journey to stardom - and about friendship, rock and roll and the sacrifices that go along with following your dream. Written by Anonymous

A fine, touching and absorbing dramatic short
15 November 2006 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Mature and disciplined rock guitarist Jay Styles (superbly played by Jayce Bartok) is on the verge of achieving the major stardom he's been working towards for a long time. Prior to performing his big breakthrough stage gig Styles does an interview with "Rolling Stone" reporter Henry Flesh (the excellent Norman Reedus) and talks about his childhood buddy Keith Waters (a haunting portrayal by Greg Haberny), a gifted, but surly, troubled and self-destructive singer whose inability to surmount his demons prevents him from realizing his considerable potential. Writer/director Jack Roberts crams a stunningly substantial amount of intriguing information into this tight, moving and absorbing fifteen minute dramatic short film about friendship, failure and success. The finely naturalistic performances, Peter Konczal's striking, gorgeously golden-hued cinematography, the pungently gritty'n'smoky atmosphere, and the first-rate rockin' soundtrack further enhance the overall sterling quality of this impressive and accomplished debut feature.
