It should have been a quick job: Otis (Sam Olive) and Cliff (Erik Nash) pose as buyers to swindle their way into drug dealer Chris's (Tyler Roy Robinson) place, then force him to give up his stash at gunpoint, and skip town with nobody outside those involved any the wiser - after all, Chris can't really go to the police, now can he? Thing is, Chris is actually quite a nice guy, he invites Otis and Cliff in, is generous enough to share a few beers and joints with them, and he and Cliff really hit it off before too long. In the meantime, Otis gets quite friendly with Chris's roommate Jocelyn (Kennedy Stinson), a hippie drifter with dreams of becoming a singer. And before you know it, the four of them party, with o0ther buyers stopping by ever so often to keep things interesting. Eventually, Chris and Otis get at odds with one another, as Otis wants to abandon the whole thing, starting to see Chris and Jocelyn as much more than just faceless drug dealers. What none of them know of course is that Chris's place is bugged, and a bunch of cops outside just wait for the signal to strike - which is all the more explosive since Chris and Otis are both packing ...


Now here's an unusual movie for sure, one that takes a standard situation that has been seen in dozens of crime movies before, and turns it on its head, and simply by digging into its lead characters' backstories rather than just presenting them as genre mainstays like "the drugdealer", "the hippie girl", "the small fry crooks" - and suddenly what could have been a standard situation becomes a bit of an epic story, and one with musical interludes even. And a clever script and a subtle directorial effort that doesn't just go for the obvious make this work, coupled with solid performances by the whole ensemble.

Really worth a look!
