Trees Lounge – Die Bar, in der sich alles dreht: Directed by Steve Buscemi. With Carol Kane, Mark Boone Junior, Steve Buscemi, Bronson Dudley. Tommy is an unemployed mechanic who spends most of his time in a bar (Trees Lounge) in a small blue collar town. He seems to always be thinking, “If only X then I could stop drinking”.
“Just happened upon this channel hopping In the early hours saw Steve Buscemi and wondered whatu0026#39;s going on here? Not a lot as It seemed but thatu0026#39;s not the point. Just sit back – preferably with a lager and allow Treeu0026#39;s Lounge to charm your trousers off.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWonderfully subdued comedy showing that Buscemi Is not only a cult anti hero on screen but that he has much promise as a director. The characters stand out as they can be related to – everyone will recognise the Bill type regular permanently attached to the counter. Mark Booneu0026#39;s wife also as a seriously difficult woman who hasnu0026#39;t a clue what she really wants, stereotypically so. Tommy yes, Is a manchild aimlessly squandering his life away, for sure It Isnu0026#39;t a good role model to aspire to approaching middle age but hey thatu0026#39;s his perogative.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis Is Steveu0026#39;s film and heu0026#39;s got charisma by the barrow full to make Treeu0026#39;s Lounge a real treat. That trick with the glasses will work once – provided your not too hammered practising. But Itu0026#39;s Uncle Al who gets the best lines – u0026quot;he loves your mothersu0026quot;, his excuse for his lecherous behaviour on the couch will bail a lot of people out of a lot of trouble.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis film Is very hard to track down, 90% of video shops I went to hadnu0026#39;t even heard of It and Itu0026#39;s been on terrestrial Tele twice – once a week late- the reward Is well worth the effort.”
