Shooting the Hip: The Cinematography of Sean Price Williams

Synopsis

Jobe, a mysterious middle-aged rollerblader, spends his days selling drugs to an eclectic mix of downtown weirdos. When he makes a special delivery to his favorite actor he’s completely starstruck, but what starts off as an exciting encounter quickly devolves into a nightmarishly comedic trainwreck.

Our take

Michael M. Bilandic’s chaotic comedy is a perfect descent into a bygone era of NYC weirdos. Set to Paul Grimstad’s lo-fi score, Sean Price Williams’ hazy images illuminate sublime performances from Jason Grisell and Theodore Bouloukos in this insomniac thrill ride.

Critics reviews

With a sly drawl and a gleam in his eye, Bouloukos conjures the sardonic bonhomie and self-deluding display of sincerity of a colossus forced to keep a foot on the ground while his head inhabits realms of celestial glory.

The cast in Jobe’z World is excellent and will do anything, no matter how stupid. . . . This feature film is a concise and action-packed sixty-seven minutes long, and I could have easily watched another half hour of it. Or definitely another ten minutes.
