About the Movie
An off-beat look at four layabouts from New Orleans, who dream big in a small change world of cards, women and endless cups of coffee. Their passionate blundering, like their rants, can be at once funny, poignant, ridiculous and heartbreaking. “Ditch” their self appointed king, is an irascible son-of-a-bitch with a Napoleon complex, and his pals love him for it. Until one day he pushes the self-tenured “Professor” too far. A game of threats, posturing and sexual ploys lead them down a dark but comic road in this exploration of what it is to be a man today. Filmed in black and white, this richly textured character study could be the bastard child of Woody Allen and Tom Waits, brought to life by an ensemble of real-life character actors who have known each other and worked together for over twenty- five years.
Great, gritty indie flick!
I saw this one on the festival circuit and immediately fell in love with it. Imagine John Cassavetes adapting a Bukowski short story for the screen - that's what this is. Gritty, nasty, raw, emotional and literary, it's hard not to get lost in its booze-soaked world of decaying relationships. Rent or purchase with confidence, people.
If you love great acting, this is a must see film
It's always such a joy to see great acting in a contemporary, dramatic setting that really explores the relationship of a group of guys just trying to get by in life. What a terrific job by this ensemble cast.
Incredible performances, great writing — love it
I’ve now seen this one three times and am eager to watch it again. It’s so good. Amazing performances all around. Moving, devastating, warm, chilling…a powerhouse of a film.
