Movie Reviews

Headless body in Topless Bar is Interesting Ensemble Acting.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Movie "Headless Body in Topless Bar is an intersting piece that employs ensemble acting. The fact that the movie takes place mainly in one local gives one the chance to get to know the individual characters instead of trying to keep up with the action. The casting is incredible, the actors were perfectly chosen for the roles. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie very much. I recommend it to any movie fan. It is a must have for any movie collector."
My Dinner with Andre in a topless bar with a spycho killer
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is a smart dark comedy that combines the dysfunctional with a clever intelligent script to create a shockingly funny sleeper. In a robbery gone awry, a vulgar psychotic ex con in a frightening portrayal by Raymond Barry, tries to rob the joint. He shoots the bartender in the head and then spends the next several hour -- the movie is in real time -- playing mind games with the 6 hostages. What comes out of this is a chilling and emotionally gripping film that is alarming and difficult to endure. This challenging film will linger with you long after. I highly recommend it and can't stop wondering why this film disappeared after its theatrical release in 1995. This film was ahead of its time -- it belongs with "Happinness", "Neighbors and Friends"... It's only better as far as I am concerned, because this one you just cannot forget. Buy it, tell your video store to get it, and talk about it..."

"I could not take my eyes off of this movie once I start watching... It is not for the light of heart. You are on the edge of your seat because you are scared for the hostages and at the same time you will find yourself starting to like the hostage taker. The theme of double life is what keeps you from leaving the show. I recommend it and cannot believe this one hasn't made it in the cult favorite of every video store!"
