Movie Reviews

A must own for all TOM WAITS fans!

"This is a great movie I caught at the film festivals earlier this year. The story is set to the early works of Tom Waits and it is quite a compelling watch.

I was very excited to find out that the DVD release contains a bonis full length CD with 18 of the Tom Waits songs from the movie performed by cool comtemporaty artists! Thats closed the deal for me! Tom Waits fans will enjoy this!"
It's dark. It's real. It's minimalist. It's not "hollywood".

"What you get here is a stunning directorial debut by an upcoming indie film director. The sparse script and environments in the film create a captivating look into the lives of those on the other side of the tracks. Elegantly caputuring the conflicted lives of two struggling twenty-somethings in love, East Of Sunset is more like a poem than a film. Highly reccomended as a field guide to anyone living (or contemplating) living the "artists life" in places like Los Angeles or New York. Props for the real grit of the "glamorized" drug life often romanticized in lessor tales.

All this and according to the filmmakers commentary on the DVD, the movie was made for under $50k, and in less than two weeks... Stunning Achievement!"
