Trivia

During the Q&A session for a 2016 festival screening of the film in New York City, when asked if he had any advice for aspiring young filmmakers in the crowd, writer/director George A. Pappy Jr. replied: "Given my experience over the past ten or twelve years, I'd say this: Making a good film (or two) is certainly possible despite all the odds stacked against you. However, even if you do succeed on that front, it doesn't guarantee that you'll be able to make a viable (and consistent) living as an independent filmmaker, especially someplace like New York or LA, where the cost of living is very high. It's a funny business, especially nowadays, and the financial rewards are not always as merit-based (or inevitable) as you'd expect from virtually any other line of work. It's important to know this going in as it may eventually inform your decision to stay or to leave the industry. Whatever you decide, I wish you good luck.". See more »

Goofs

When Frank spins the open cylinder of his double-action revolver, we hear a clicking sound. In reality, the cylinder on such a revolver spins unimpeded and makes almost no noise when rotated in the open position. Clicking cylinders are unique to single-action revolvers. See more »

A Genuine Discovery
12 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

"Few Options," a film by emerging writer/director George Pappy, is one of those movie gems that can pop up unexpectedly from time to time - all the more affecting because audiences get to discover it for themselves without being force-fed by the Big Time film distribution system. This passion project from a movie artist currently outside the mainstream was made with no budget but lots of guts and touching human insight. Clearly, Pappy just said "Damn the torpedoes!" and shot his honest, fulfilling movie on credit cards. But cheap here does NOT mean unsophisticated. This is smart Film-Noir going back to its roots to tell an intense story from the point of view of an ex-con who lives in a murky world of moral ambiguity, no easy answers, and no way out. Pretty much the human condition as we find it today. Bravo, Mr. Pappy. We eagerly await your next.
