    This movie reminds me of a sight I once saw in Herford Texas. In a feed lot there was this huge heap of dung on which was standing majestically a cow. Remove the cow and you have the humor value of this movie and the smell. I spent money on this pile, please don't let this happen to you.

    Southland Tales, while offering an intriguing vision of the future, remains frustratingly incoherent and unpolished.

    I actually worked on the film- two 17 hour days at the Skirball ( or was it "screwball, as in 'comedy' ) centerin L.A., playing a club-goer as a BG actor. Around 300 of usspent two consecutive nights in a mock club-set-in-a-Zeppelin floating over L.A. Kelley is a cool guy with a great imagination;he just needs to submit his ideas to the classic scriptwriting format: 3 act structure, character arc, protagonist/antagonist,-that never fails to yield results when great ideas are plugged into it. It's all part of growing up, something that if Kelley isever challenged to do, will produce a great American film maker.
