Our intrepid Austin, TX freelancer George Hickman is at the 2011 SXSW Film Festival for the next week and will be providing us with daily content.
One film I thought looked interesting is Sebastian Gutierrez’s GIRL WALKS INTO A BAR. The movie stars Carla Gugino, Zachary Quinto, Danny DeVito, Josh Hartnett, Rosario Dawson, and Robert Forster.
It turns out that its available in its entirety on YouTube. For free! You don’t even need to be at the festival. Watch it right now:
Here’s the synopsis: GIRL WALKS INTO A BAR connects a group of apparent strangers over one night across ten bars throughout Los Angeles. Zachary Quinto stars as a dentist who teams up with a feisty would-be assassin (Carla Gugino) to put the final touches on the plan to kill his wife. Once he makes a play for the assassin’s payment, he unknowingly sets off a chain of events that fuels a crosstown journey through the many lounges, bars, strip clubs and the occasional nudist ping pong clubs scattered across Los Angeles. By turns funny and heartbreaking, this sharp-witted comedy features ten interconnected vignettes that build to a revealing finish.
