United States | 75 minutes | Not Rated | DCP | Dir. Bob Byington
Lazy, lonely yet loveable Larry (Schwartzman) can hold his liquor but can't hold onto a job in this deadpan comic meditation on a bum and his bulldog from writer-director Byington (Harmony and Me, Somebody Up There Likes Me). Fired from his previous restaurant gig for drinking on the clock, Larry ends up at Quick Lube vacuuming cars and actually somewhat enjoying it, mostly due to a new crush on his attractive boss. With the emotional support of his only friend (Adebimpe) and financial help from his cranky grandmother (Olympia Dukakis), unmotivated yet always droll Larry barely tries to get by. A co-presentation of WUD Film and UW Cinematheque. (CS) - UW Cinematheque, Official Website.
