Movie Reviews

A look into our everyday society.

"I recieved "Tweek City" off of last week and spent my Friday night with it. (I have a bit of a thing for Giuseppe Andrews and have been waiting for this movie for awhile.) I honestly can say that I enjoyed the movie very much. A lot of it I didn't expect at all, but who really purchases a film in hopes of seeing a girl get puked on or a "Cleveland Steemer"? Some of it reminded me of the times I used to get messed up with friends...and made me appreciate that I'm not living that lifestyle anymore. Still, it felt like a love story for the demented at heart...because if a past love crashed my wedding and put a gun in my face, I'd probably have to shag him. Random events of random people's lives, it felt more like a documentary than fiction. Because the truth is, somebody out there is living that life. It's 2007, a large percentage of the world is living that life."
The Indie of Indies

"Hey, it's the "Hey, it's the party man!" dubious cop from Cabin Fever (Giuseppe Andrews) who stars in this dark and gritty odyssey into the bowels of lost innocence and self-hatred. Because of the graphic nature of some of the sex scenes (one involving fecal matter), it seems that the nether regions have been optically blurred out. In the director's commentary, Eric G. Johnson talks articulately about how the film was put together on such a low budget, thematically and technically. If you want indie, this is it."
Brave filmaker / amazing cast, crew, and soundtrack

"This film was amazingly and accurately dark. While viewing I couldn't help being drawn in by the characters yet, appropriately, couldn't get comfortable either. The scene selections and use of varying media helped identify with Bill's dichotomous existence. All of this was framed with one of the best soundtracks I have ever heard. Great work - keep them coming!"

Odyssey of drugs and denial
Poetic, stylish "Tweek City" debuts Sunday at the Dances With Films Festival.

By Kevin Thomas, Times Staff Writer

Eric G. Johnson's "Tweek City" is a double-whammy discovery -- for writer-producer-director Johnson and for his star, Giuseppe Andrews. It is a harrowing yet illuminating odyssey driven by an impassioned, confident filmmaker and a young actor of equal resources and daring.

Although not autobiographical, the film draws upon a dark period in Johnson's life, which gives it a sense of being told by someone who's been there and done that.

Andrews' Bill is a charismatic San Francisco drug dealer who spirals downward on crystal meth over a period of several days. He takes drugs to blot out nightmares of a troubled childhood, which only intensifies his paranoia, his denial of his half-Latino heritage and his homophobia, which may mask a latent homosexuality. Johnson and cinematographer Barry Stone employ various types of cameras, film and tape, and add stylistic flourishes that express Bill's quicksilver shifts of mood and temperament in a manner that is darkly vital and poetic."
