Storyline

A Los Angeles artist with everything seemingly going for him, suddenly finds a change in his life, when an art curator cancels his upcoming one-man show. His model girlfriend immediately leaves him. Forced to move back to his old job at a pizza parlor, and into a rundown tenement, where several oddballs wander the hall, including a lonely middle aged woman, who makes Spam casseroles for all the bachelors, a daffy prostitute, and a Spanish Don Juan, who wanders the halls in his bathrobe. Then, a young Colorado woman moves across the hall and things look up, until he learns that she has a total backwoods quality that he doesn't know how to handle. When he dumps her, the whole building turns on him. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Jackson Pollack He's Not ...
2 March 2006 | by ruffriderSee all my reviews

Alex is a painter, each of whose canvases is just one big window-sized slab of yellow (or red, or whatever color it happens to be). Not only his art but his life lacks inspiration: his one-man show is not to be, his girlfriend just walked out, he's moved into a building full of oddballs and he's back delivering pizza to pay the rent. I expected this flick to turn into a sitcom, but it got better as it went along, developing characters and relationships, especially the one between artsy liberal snob Alex and his new neighbor Lori, whose magnum pistol, martial arts skills and utter lack of sophistication generate the contempt he has for her, despite the fact that they're having a physical relationship. Throw in the wacky neighbors, like the bathrobe-clad Lothario/one-man Greek Chorus who wanders the halls and delivers his observations in Spanish, the super-nosy super, the big-busted strip-o-gram girl, the horny, man-devouring Biddie and a couple of others and you've got funny and touching portraits of a by turns lovable and unlovable loser and the colorful characters in his orbit. Don't know why, exactly, but this story reminded me a bit of Steve Buscemi's terrific "Tree's Lounge" - another indie about a loser and his odd pals. This one's cute and it's got a happier ending. For the price of your admission you get "early" Mark Ruffalo (2001) in an affecting role and cute, largely unknown Beth Ulrich, who's a find.
