Hardcore expose of Irish man dealing with life...
20 March 2006 | by dwpollarSee all my reviews

1st watched 3/19/2006 - 7 out of 10(Dir-Jimmy Smallhorne): Hardcore expose of Irish man dealing with life in New York City and dealing with his own personal issues that have haunted him since childhood. Jimmy Smallhorne directs, co-wrote the screenplay and stars in this independent film that takes a slice of life look at a group of Irish immigrants and their lives together. The main character, Johnny, is a foreman who builds buildings(Aka. 2by4), karaoke's at night in drag, and dabbles in homosexuality but has a girlfriend who isn't aware of this initially. His nightmares reveal something that happened when he was a child but they're never quite clear enough to the audience or to Johnny for him to understand them. Things get worse as the movie continues… Johnny loses his girlfriend, his Uncle(who is the owner of the company he works for) is spending money from the job on tricks for himself and not paying his employees. As things go downhill, Johnny goes further down thru drinking and drugs until it's revealed to him what happened when he was a child. At this point it was unclear to me what that really was, but I was able to piece it together and others should be able to as well and that's the movie!! Overall, a well-drawn out drama that takes us places where we're normally not able to go and therefore makes for a good story and entertainment.
