Last Nite at Sam's
In a rapidly gentrifying dive bar, two men pick a fight. “Last Nite at Sam’s,” directed by Devon Manney, is an intense animated film that depicts a violent night spiraling out of control with vivid soundscapes and compositions. What starts as an ordinary evening — one patron picks a song from the jukebox while another does a bump of cocaine — becomes a free-for-all. After wrestling for control of the TV remote, two men start a fight that soon turns into a brawl then a riot. Manney is unafraid to push the envelope into ultra-violence and chaos and he twists the knife further in the film’s final moments with a shot of callous greed. -KA.
