Storyline

Los Angelenos meet on Christmas Eve through chance, tragedy, and divine intervention. Velvet Larry is the sleazy owner of the strip club where the glamorous but struggling single mother Rose Johnny dances. Qwerty Doolittle is a shy young mortician who falls in love with her. Randall is the head of a corporate crime organization who tries to convince a former employee just released from prison not to seek vengeance on his former co-workers. Charlie is a suicidally depressed ex-priest. Lexus is a lonely transsexual prostitute who shares an unexpected bond with the former priest. Written by Anonymous

Powder and Glue
26 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

'Powder Blue' tries hard to be effective but for the most part it falls flat. The film is about four isolated lives which at some point during the movie, connect with one another. Yet, the stories are half-baked and theatrical and the characters actions hardly make sense. Moreover they're loaded with cheesy dialogues that are poorly delivered. The characters beg the viewer's sympathy but I found myself caring less for what happens to them. 'Powder Blue' tries to be like 'Magnolia' and it grossly fails to reach anywhere near the superiority of that movie. Forest Whitaker appears too whiny. His best scenes are those with Kudrow. Ray Liotta perhaps has the best role and he does a fine job here. Jessica Biel has her moments of good acting and abysmal acting but she proves to be a very good dancer. Eddie Redmayne looks confused most of the time. There are small appearances by Lisa Kudrow, Kris Kristopherson, Riki Lindhome, and Patrick Swayze but their characters lack development. Swayze is barely recognizable and he successfully provides comic relief. Lisa Kudrow delivers the most natural performance as she stands out in a small role (in my opinion, a role too small to do justice to her immense talent). I liked how the film was executed, mostly under a cold colour tone reflecting the gloominess of the atmosphere and the cold Christmas weather. The use of digital camera also gives the film a raw look that adds to the scenes. 'Powder Blue' is not among the worst films but it seriously needed rewriting because now it is almost very much a half-baked and insipid soap opera
