Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 11/14/1996
"...Buscemi crafts a tantalizing character study that swings from hilarious to harrowing without losing its agile footing..."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/11/1996
"...[Buscemi] creates the finest role of his career....So deft, funny, and light-handed it may not be until the film's shattering final image that you realize you've been wathcing one of the most lived-in portraits of an alcoholic ever made..." -- Rating: A
Variety - 05/20/1996
"...Buscemi poignantly conveys the dead-end nature of the lives on display without condescension....Buscemi has come out on top..."
Los Angeles Times -
"...The film is laced with the kinds of performances and scenes that marked the early work of John Cassavetes....Buscemi also got from himself a terrific performance..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/25/1996
"...Buscemi is the house act of American independent films....He is above all able to project the quality of bone-weariness..."

Product Description:

An acclaimed, often-comic examination of a 31-year-old, unemployed barfly auto mechanic's pathetic non-existence. Losing his job after his friend and boss stole his girlfriend, this Long Island loser spends his days and nights in the titular watering hole (at least when he's not out driving an ice-cream truck), not realizing that talking about life isn't the same as living it. Star Steve Buscemi wrote the screenplay and makes his directorial debut.

Plot Synopsis:

Look up the word "Loser" in the dictionary, and you'll probably find a photo of 31-year-old Tommy there. This underachieving, alcoholic, irresponsible auto mechanic has just been fired for stealing from his boss. So he now spends his time as a near-permanent barfly at the eccentric Trees Lounge. However, when he's not at the bar, Tommy is engaged in immature activities that wreak havoc in his life -- and those of others.
But when the repercussions of Tommy's acts begin to occur, will he be stable enough to cope with them' Or will they just further his downward spiral'
