review by
Mike Haberfelner

Lou (Marshall Walker Lee) returns to his hometown after a few years of absence, and he's adamant about not letting anyone know where he's been (only the audience eventually learns he spent some time in prison). He's also determined to from now on walk on the straight and narrow, meaning finding himself a job instead of partying his life away, take responsibility, and ... and it just drags him down, not only but also because his friends are mostly artists of one sort or another and live a very alternative lifestyle, not caring all that much about money and stuff. Thing is, even though Lou has a job, money's always tight, tight enough that he has to sleep in his best friend Jackie's (Megan Carver) van, and even has to share it with her (and the two consequently are in each other's hair all the time). And the work he has isn't even fulfilling, just a dead end job as a lowly shop clerk at a mall. And the harder Lou tries, the worse it gets it seems ...


The Buskers & Lou is one of these slife-of-life movies it's very easy to identify with - especially if one has once worked in a dead end job, even shortly, and who hasn't? Now what really works with this movie is its very unexcited approach to events, coupled with very relatable characters (even the crazier ones are at least believable), very natural acting in down-to-earth locations, and a finely tuned script that doesn't drift off into pure drama too much, features at least hints of subtle comedy.

Well worth a look for sure.
