Charlie Wolfe is a gun-for-hire. He is cocky, arrogant, and self-indulgent. In this newly released black comedy, Wolfe also is in-the-mix for 3 different murders. Peg appears to be trying to change his screen image from sad-sack to the more macho-type man. It seems to help when he is armed to the teeth. If you like him, you'll like this film.
Jermaine Clement, formerly from the musical duet team of "Flight of the Conchords" is one of several vampires that agree to let a film crew into their flat to capture their day-to-day escapades . . . or rather their night-to-night ones. 85 minutes long, but could be a little shorter. Petyr is 8,000 years old. Vladislav is over 800. The "youngster" of the roommates is around 160 yrs old. The vampire jokes are unlike any I've seen in this genre before. I never stopped to think about just how hard it is for a vampire to groom himself, when he cannot see his reflection. Watch till the end of the credits for the last joke.
In the world there are a lot of lonely people. In the "Bad City" all the characters shown fit this description. One is a young man who has a father that is a junkie. They live together in sometimes subtle desolation. Where will this young man turn for comfort and companionship? If he plays his cards right, he might be able to hook-up with a vampire that is daily picking off the city's population. Shot in B&W. There is not much action and very little horror. What there is is a great deal of isolation and a glimmer of hope.
Jeremy Renner stars in this suspense/crime/biography that's based on the true story of journalist, Gary Webb, whose exposé on our government's role in the importing & distribution of drugs to finance the purchase of arms for the Contras in Nicaragua, helps ruin his life. Not a pleasant story whenever any one person tries to take on the government. Also available in DVD.
