Eliza's Horoscope: An early Tommy Lee Jones film and a waste

(1 out of 5 stars)
"Don't be fooled by the mature photo of Tommy Lee Jones on the cover art; this film is 30+ years old; a young Tommy Lee plays a bitter Amer. Indian who lives in a slum apartment while plotting to destroy a bridge; "Eliza" moves into the same building while searching for a true love. Despite the synopsis, this movie fails to deliver anything coherently resembling a storyline in all of its excruciating 2 hours.
It suffers from bad writing, bad directing and bad editing; the sound quality is equally miserable, although this doesn't matter much as the dialogue is often nonsensical and amaturish. The film inflicts frequent closeups of leering, laughing, overly made up faces or people prancing in and out of frames in a nonsensical manner, all of which add NOTHING to the story. Not even Jones can save this Titanic.
If you're looking for early Tommy Lee, try "Jackson County Jail" (aka The Innocent Victim), "The Eyes of Laura Mars" or "Back Roads". His talent can shine through in these, and he doesn't have to battle a constant backdrop of ridiculous claptrap masquerading as an "art" film."
