Night At The Golden Eagle Review


Very Good
Old town Los Angeles, just south of the high-rise financial district, is a seedy, run-down visage of what once was a thriving metropolis. Filled with drugs, prostitution, and vagrants, it represents a dark underbelly of the glamour of Hollywood. In the heart of all this mess is the Golden Eagle hotel, setting for Night at the Golden Eagle, by director Adam Rifkin.

The film presents a snapshot of the hotel and its inhabitants, looking into a night filled with murder and gluttony in the doldrums of a desolate world. Tommy (Donnie Montemarano) and Mick (Vinnie Argiro) are two life-long friends from Brooklyn, in their early sixties, who have made their way as crooks. Tommy has just been released from prison, and Mick has brought him back to the hotel, where he surprises his buddy with a story of how he has gone clean. No more crime, booze, or floozies for Mick, who has saved up enough dough for the both of them to get on a bus at 7 a.m. the next morning to head for a new start in Vegas. But a mischievous Tommy, anxious after seven years in the pen, gets into some trouble after being propositioned by the seductive Amber (Natasha Lyonne). Amber is a "whooore," as Tommy refers to her with his thick Brooklyn accent, and part of a small prostitution ring run by Rodan (Vinnie Jones) from within the building.
