Very original, cool dark comedy about a Hollywood soundman
8 March 1999 | by jbiggs65See all my reviews

This is a well done indie film with a strong story and even stronger performances. It is a dark comedy that shows one side of Hollywood life through the eyes of a soundman. He is constantly misunderstood and eventually goes crazy while trying to help a friend get "connected" into the music biz. This leads him through a series of confrontations with his director, producer, a grip, and various outsiders. Think Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver as a soundman! A must see for art/indie film buffs!
