The Queen of Hollywood Blvd.
Directed by Orson Oblowitz
On her 60th birthday, Queen Mary (Rosemary Hochschild) receives a visit from Duke (Roger Guenveur Smith), a gangster who shows up out of the past to take back her beloved, aging Hollywood nightclub, given to her 25 years ago. But Duke is not a guy to be messed with, and to ensure Mary lives up to her side of the bargain, he kidnaps her son Otto. With the help of a teenage runaway named Grace (Ana Mulvoy-Ten) and an old friend Chet (Michael Parks), Mary must navigate seedy Hollywood to save her son, her life, and her club.
On her 60th birthday, the proud owner of a Los Angeles strip club finds herself in hot water over a twenty-five year old debt to the mob.
Cast: Rosemary Hochschild, Ana Mulvoy Ten, Michael Parks, Roger Guenveur Smith, Jon Lindstrom
Wanted to like it but bored me. The actress is great though! Visually stimulating but wasn’t buying the plot.
Stylistic and hip. While a slow burn, this film looked fantastic. Lighting, overall atmosphere - just really well directed. The cast was excellent. A great movie, but a lot of style over substance - nothing deep, not much of a story, but I still dug it!
Incredibly tedious and boring. Not at all the movie I expected from the trailer.
The atmosphere was decent. It's visually, and aesthetically pleasing to look at, and the premise is a good one, but overall the movie is slow, dull, and pretty boring. Wasted potential.
I kept waiting for the movie to start
