Urbania

"Grim"

Urbania Review


Er... huh? This bizarre updating of After Hours puts Griffin Dunne lookalike Dan Futterman in the body of a gay man dealing with a mysterious tragedy. Over the course of a weekend, he encounters one stranger after another, each of whom relates to him some urban legend (eg. the kidney thief), which we see played out for us in the foreground or background. Based on a play I've never heard of, most of the movie is nonsense, though some of it can be fun. The homosexual content is a stretch, though, and doesn't really fit the rest of the movie.
