This is a movie I've been meaning to see for ten years or so but just never got around to. Similarily, most of the characters in this film have been meaning to do something with their life, but they too just never got around to doing it. Some of these stories can work well on screen, but through much of the movie Trees Lounge stumbles around as aimlessly as the local drunks that frequent the bar o... read more

" Things aren't going so well for Tommy Basilio. He lost his job because he "borrowed" money from the register, his girlfriend left him for his boss and is now pregnant, and he can't find work because of the incident. His life revolves around the Trees Lounge, a neighborhood bar over which he lives, full of the colorful eccentrics one finds in such places, like the estranged husband, or the old boozer drinking himself to death. He drunkenly wanders through his life, still in love with his ex"

"First viewing - Nov. 16th Much like Buscemi himself, this film is an odd duck. We follow our protagonist along through what seems to be the lowest point of his life, and end up in a place that suggests a chance things could improve without giving us a concrete delivery of catharsis. The cast is excellent all around, the soundtrack is mostly good, and it entertained me and left me with something to think about. So yeah, if you haven't seen this give it a look."

"Most of the time, whenever Hollywood tackles the subject about alcoholism, it usually tends to take a very dramatic approach to the concept, often showing the drunk hitting rock bottom and his world crashing around him. Trees Lounge is a film that portrays an alcoholic (Steve Buscemi, who also makes his directorial debut here) and the kind of comfortable slide that prevents the drinker from seeing himself in the gutter that his habit is wading him into. Lounge effectively takes a more subdued lo"
