BACK AGAINST THE WALL

Director: James Fotopoulos

U.S.A • 2002 • 94 MIN.


James Fotopoulos is a Chicago-based underground film-maker with a cult following who has made three low-budget features and many shorts. Back Against the Wall is a three-part drama about some world-class losers, including middle-aged slacker Levey (Martin Shannon), whose girlfriend (Debbie Mulcahy) models lingerie in a seedy Midwestern bar. Fotopoulos tells his stories leisurely, favouring a static camera, long takes, lots of talk and ambient sound.
