Classic Hollywood Works The Night Shift
16 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sally Kellerman, Ernest Borgnine, Rance Howard, Mickey Rooney, Jan Rooney, Paul Sorvino, and Chuck McCann. Those are just a few of the classic Hollywood actors that Sam Borowski's Night Club has to offer. Don't mistake those roles as throw away paychecks though, as every single actor named puts in a performance worthy of Oscar Buzz. No film you will see this year can offer as much heart, soul, poignancy, humor, and joy. The film is something of a miracle that combines beautiful cinematography, solid writing, and assured direction to create a film, along with excellent acting, that will give you your money's worth and more. Independent film takes a step forward with Night Club and its up and coming director Sam Borowski. If you have older people in your life this films is for you, if you enjoy college age shenanigans this film is for you, and if you grew up in the 80's or love the films of that time this film is surely for you. I fell in love with Night Club the second I heard a new (excellent) rendition of Quarterflash's Night Shift put over top of a great opening montage. The film is reminiscent of a film called Night Shift which paved the way for Ron Howard and Michael Keaton (director and actor respectively). I say this because Sam Borowski and first time actor Bryan Williams combine their talents to light up the screen. The film is shot so well, set to a fantastic soundtrack (very 80's inspired) and score that you will not be disappointed by its independent budget. I haven't talked about the plot but if you read the plot summary that's all you need to know going in, because the film grabs you immediately and never lets go. Besides excellent performances from Kellerman and Borgnine Ahney Her and Bryan Williams'(previously mentioned) on-screen chemistry is comedy gold and proves that the two of them are here to stay in this business and I cannot wait to see them in all of their upcoming projects. Sam Borowski delivers a crazy-impressive first feature film and one not to be missed by every audience member of the four quadrants. Seek this film out at whatever theater or film festival you can (Newport Beach is the only one announced yet (I doubt only for long though)) because you won't regret it and in fact the film will touch you deeper than you thought possible. So do yourself a favor and don't make a Big Mistake and see Night Club and fall in love with it just like I did.
