Storyline

Two actors. On a road. With a tree. An effective description of the world Tony A and Tony Z find themselves inhabiting in Alan Arkin's film. "Samuel Beckett is Coming Soon...". Far from home, awaiting fame, recognition - or just an audience - the Tonys barely notice their lives mirroring the sad comedy, "Waiting for Godot." As they journey through the Southland, they find much less than they bargained for, trying to bring Beckett's classic to a largely disinterested modern audience. Written by Anonymous

A Perfect Film Short - Wish It Was Available!
20 August 2001 | by Kenn-15See all my reviews

This little gem of an independent comedy from veteran actor-director Alan Arkin is, as far as I know, completely unavailable. I caught it at a film festival, and loved it. You have to be familiar with Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot" to get the joke, but if you are, you'll get a big kick out of it. This film is yet another example of why there should be a video label that specializes in the home video distribution of short films. Why aren't films like this available in the home video market?? Bravo, Alan Arkin!
