Will Alliance/Pandora/Why Not/Odessa/Alta/Mikado (Jim Stark
& Hank Blumenthal)
W: Alexandre Rockwell
DP: Phil Parmet
Ed: Dana Congdon
Steve Buscemi (Adolpho Rollo), Seymour
Cassel (Joe), Jennifer Beals (Angelica Pena), Will Patton (Skippy), Jim Jarmusch (Monty), Sam Rockwell (Paulie)
cult indie black comedy with Steve Buscemi & Seymour Cassel on top form. Buscemi plays a budding screenwriter and director obsessed with making his pretentious 500-page screenplay and finally
gets the backing from local mobster Cassel, who uses Buscemi as an accessory to gain the funds by illicit means.
Though the story may owe a little inspirational debt to Neil
Simon's The Odd Couple it sure is a must-watch for budding filmmakers.
Seymour Cassel absolutely steals the movie, which also
features an impressive acting performance from Jennifer Beals.
