So i'm posting this mostly to piss PowerRR's off. Trailer for PTA's upcoming movie (that isn't called Soggy Bottom despite it being an amazing title): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofnXPwUPENo

And yes, that boy is Philip Seymour Hoffman's son.

Are we really getting groggysghost or is it just groggyTim hiding under another name?

While it's beautifully shot and features two likable leads, the script is an episodic shitshow which creates a horrifically slow paced, plodding mess. The movie works best in the first half as a jukebox movie (ie "Peace Frog" & "Let Me Roll It"), but this is a token example of how bad episodic movies almost always miss the mark. This one is a huge misfire that constantly features undeveloped. random new characters that the audience is strangely asked to care about. And too many scenes are way too long, like the restaurant scene with Sean Penn and the great Tom Waits. The movie flatlines before the bizarre Rebel Without a Cause set Evel Knievel bike jump, which is so fucking bizarre.

And how does it make a lick of sense for a 15 year old to be able to start two businesses, and how does a kid get randomly arrested for murder only to be chained to a chair and have some hippie say 'it's not him' and then he's released without any further explanation? And for a city as vast as LA, characters just randomly run into one another at whim, and why wouldn't the psycho Jon Peters character attack the kids after they drove away from the gas station when he ran into them again? But then it suddenly becomes hard to find one another for dramatic reasons at the climax?

This movie needed to go two ways: 1) a low key jukebox movie where the 15-17 year old boy is in love with his buddy's older sister, or 2) The Long Goodbye on acid following around the Jon Peters character for a weekend. Option 2 is the correct answer.

It would be an F+ if it wasn't so well lit and shot. D+

You've convinced me. I'll steer clear.
