LONELY BOYS REVIEWED
“Lonely Boys” is a great film about losers. People automatically associate the modern loser with the kind of folks you see in Alexander Payne movies. It’s not fair off, but you don’t have to be an awful person to be a loser. This film explores that idea, as we follow two men that are frequently on the wrong side of life. You rebuff the wrong person or can’t let go of the past. No matter what happens, it seems like something new is there to clip your wings.
When the duo gets out of NYC and their former lives, they learn something. It’s the same lesson that Risso and Joe learned on the bus from NYC to Florida. No matter how hard you run, you can’t escape your destiny. Embrace the awfulness of your lives and find camaraderie at the bottom. Solid stuff.
