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.

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.

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.
