"Unapologetically brash in dialogue and texture GOODNIGHT JOSEPH PARKER is the classic love story brought to a no-pleasantries bar room. Girl loves man who loves woman, woman isn't worth his time. Into that mix throw in a hopeless drunk with a good heart and weak stomach, a bartender who's more desperate than his customers and Steven Tyler as a shameless bad boy looking for a good time and fast woman. Powerful, gritty, hard hitting and raw."Written by
Ross Anthony's Hollywood Report Card
This is one of the finest ensemble casts put together in the independent world. Ever. Sorvino is superb. They all are. A very solid work. Steven Tyler rips through his scenes beautifully. Like father, like daughter! Dennis Brooks has crafted a world, not unlike Cheers, where the characters all have well-worn spots in their favorite bar stools. But this is NOT Cheers, believe me. Here, everything is on edge, and as things unravel, the pain of the past gushes out into bursts of surreal nastiness.
Great writing. Strong directing. Lovely music. What else is there to say? Even the "stagy" feel mentioned in the other review works, as it feeds the claustrophobic nature of the world they are living in, and losing.
