The words offbeat, personal and edgy used to be a draw for movie fare — we’d check out a new relationship picture based only on an actor or two that we liked. Bobby Roth’s semi-autobiographical buddy story takes a good stab at the early ’80s art + singles scene in Los Angeles, with a dash of macho clich├ęs — pals Peter Coyote and Nick Mancuso fight in public, and somehow suffer while bedding fantastic women. But the overall vibe is one of honest sensitivity, aided by fine performances from Carole Laure, Kathryn Harrold and Carol Wayne. Plus music by Tangerine Dream. On Blu-ray from Fun City Editions.
