an utter gem. this is touching, funny and sad with buscemi on top form (unsuprisingly) as tommy, a 30something drifter/dreamer/slacker/drinker/out of work machanic. chloe sevigny is perfect as the knowingly sexy teenage love interest. it really hits on issues about living, losing and loving in a small town and is suffused with a dark sense of humour ensuring that whilst sad, its acute observations render if from being a mawkish and trite affair. then again, we'd expect nothing less from buscemi. a perfect summer time blues picture.
