John Hawkes is a washed-up, alcoholic, total mess of an ex-cop whose sister (Octavia Spencer) and her husband (Anthony Anderson) are the last two people in their small town who’ll still put up with him being around…aside from bartenders when he actually manages to have cash on hand. But when he stumbles into a murder case, the old detective light switches back on and he finds a reason to not dive into a bottle as he chases down killers and killers chase him. Listen to Beau, Chris, and Frank just downright RAVE about this little crime film that could.
Written by Chris Cox
Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
