Why to Watch - Trees Lounge

Let me just say this, if you don’t like Steve Buscemi then give me your address because I will happily make my way over and then take a giant dinosaur sized shit right on your front lawn.



Trees Lounge (1996) Comedy, Drama | 95min | October 11, 1996 (United States) 7.1
Director: Steve BuscemiWriter: Steve BuscemiStars: Steve Buscemi, Carol Kane, Mark Boone JuniorSummary: Things aren't going so well for Tommy Basilio. He lost his job because he "borrowed" money from the register, his girlfriend left him for his boss and is now pregnant, and he can't find work because of the incident. His life revolves around the Trees Lounge, a neighborhood bar over which he lives, full of the colorful eccentrics one finds in such places, like the estranged husband, or the old boozer drinking himself to death. He drunkenly wanders through his life, still in love with his ex, desperate for some sort of meaning beyond the bar, some sort of meaning to his life. —Gary Dickerson <slug@mail.utexas.edu>
