Excellent example of Video-to-Film low budget drama
15 July 1999 | by bradford-5See all my reviews

This is a simple film, an actors' showpiece really. One night, in the lives of a group of cab drivers, following them as they drive around San Francisco. Better than it sounds, if a bit rambling.

Notable technically for being shot on 3/4" video and transferred to film. It was released theatrically in the art house circuit, to generally good reviews. I saw it on the giant screen at the old Picwood in West LA. It looked quite good, primarily because it all took place at night, and featured mainly closeups of the actors. As you become caught up in their stories you don't notice that this was a film reportedly shot for all of $1800. It doesn't look it. Quite a lesson, in light of the current (1999) brouhaha over low budget digital cinema.
