Tweek City is a week in the life of Bill, a potentially closeted, half-Latino, small-time speed dealer in San Francisco's Mission District. Bill is stuck on an endless walk from one empty experience to the next. Only Bill's friend Jerm has the ability to connect and ground him in reality. When Jerm makes an ill-advised stage dive, Bill plunges into a downward spiral that takes him on a nocturnal journey through the streets of San Francisco and ultimately down to Los Angeles where he crashes his high school sweetheart's wedding. From his sleep-deprived, hallucinogenic state, Bill fails miserably in a desperate attempt to reconnect with his first and only love. With nowhere else to go, Bill jacks a car and ends up at the deserted drive-in theater of his childhood where he is forced to confront the ghosts that he had tried to leave behind.Written by
I usually don't like this type of film, but I saw the trailer for "Tweek City" and thought what the heck. I was glad I did. Tweek City is interesting from beginning to end. Eric Johnson's use of different styles of cameras really add to the gritty and dark feel of the movie. The acting was better than I expected. The story itself is one that we have all seen a million times, but different in that you find yourself starting to care for the main character Bill. Bill's decent into paranoia and the way it is portrayed is top notch. I have read other reviews for this film that are not great, but I say give this movie a chance and you won't be disappointed. If you have seen this movie and didn't like it at first, watch it again.
