Storyline

In 1979 Brooklyn, Jack Anderson is a down and out struggling law student desperate for a loan to pay his school tuition. Jack is an artist at heart, but decides to go to law school after his father Doug (Eric Roberts) is incarcerated for embezzlement. He's hoping to help his father's case, but without the money to pay his tuition, he'll have to drop out. Everywhere Jack turns, he gets shot down - by the banks, by society and sadly, by girls. Jack's only hope lies in his fellow classmate and horse-betting friend, Gino. Gino's Uncle Dennis, an Irishman with questionable business practices, has the cash Jack needs to pay off his tuition, but that loan comes with a steep and treacherous price. Written by Ari Taub

Trivia

Shot completely in 16mm, 79 PARTS is a gritty, period action comedy film that walks the audience back to a time of idiotic small-time hoods, loan sharks, scam artists, Feds, gamblers and illegal Irish and Italian immigrants. The film was shot over a 6 year period and takes place in only seven days--so the actors had to look the same on every shoot, and a good amount of hair color had to be applied to actors who greyed in that period, not to mention keeping an eye on weight loss and weight gain for all the principal talent.

9 May 2019 | by nick-1023See all my reviews

This is a silly movie that is so big you are amazed it's an indie film. This is a movie for people that love the macho aspects of life and cinema: cars, romance, gambling and snappy jokes.

The movie has about fifty characters and lots of plot-lines so it feels long and short at the same time, I would much rather have seen it as a miniseries or some other kind of structure because each of the characters have their own potential.

By the end of the movie I was so immersed in the world and used to the pace I was ready for more. It has a binge-able feel of the first few episodes of a TV show on netflix.

There's really just a lot going on in the movie and I appreciate that especially vs some other ponderous indie films with their inverted gaze, pretentious use of fancy lenses and melodrama. This movie hits hard and fast and it looks fine, it's well shot but it has a totally different pace and tone than some self important indie film.

79 Parts is a fun movie made in a spirit that hearkens back to movies from the 80's. It has some real laughs and there's nothing about the movie that is lazy or cheap. I gave it an extra star because it was made for basically zero dollars.
