When you think of a free movie, you think of a poor product, a straight-to-DVD movie, but Girl Walks Into a Bar has an all-star cast.
Written and directed by Sebastian Gutierrez (Snakes on a Plane/Gothika), it stars Danny DeVito, Josh Hartnett, and Rosario Dawson among others.
The near hour-and-30-minute movie takes place over one night and is essentially a bunch of short films put together (think Coffee and Cigarettes), but still ties all the characters together.
The main character is Francine Driver, a former cop who poses as an assassin, played by Carla Gugino. She’s goes in search of a 20,000 payment. When she doesn’t get the money, the night ensues and she meets dancers, photographers, ex-cons, gangsters and more.
Whether the film is quality or not, it’s a good sign that the movie industry is starting to realize the advantages of the internet, offering innovate ways to watch cinema. Times have changed and spending money on a trip to the movie theater isn’t on that many people’s minds anymore.
