Jimmy (Josh Mitchell) is a rich venture capitalist who has grown tired of his job and now he spends most of his time putting up art events in his loft/gallery - a success like anything he touches ... but deep down he wants to become a white rapper, but in his luxurious surroundings and with his staff around him all the time, he can't concentrate on writing the proper lyrics at all.

Jaysin (Mike Maolucci) is a poor singer/songwriter who could use a break from his shoebox apartment, wants to at least taste the "rock star life".

At one of Jimmy's shows, he and Jaysin meet and decide to do a life swap, meaning Jaysin may have Jimmy's loft for a month to do as he pleases, while Jimmy gets Jaysin's shoebox, which he also uses as his recording studio ... and one day, Jimmy finds a half-naked woman on the couch of the apartment, Kelli (Alethea Sholomenko), Jaysin's ex who wanted to surprise him and rekindle their relationship ... but somehow she feels attracted to Jimmy much more than she ever felt to Jaysin, and she also proves to be a great singer, and helps Jimmy by singing back-up vocals ... and soon Jimmy wants to help her with her career in return. The two soon become lovers as well ...

In the meantime, Jaysin fucks up big time, living the life of a rock star without making the music to go by, having endless drug-fuelled parties, talking down to his friends and supporters and being a general asshole. But he manages to organize an event at the loft nevertheless - and he invites Jimmy ...

At the event, Jimmy learns a thing or two about about Kelli - things he would rather not have known and that throw everything in jeopardy ...

 

In its best moments, Lack of Cockery is a loving tribute to the LA art scene, told from the inside and featuring some wonderful performances from as of yet little known talent. Plus its light-footed, almost ironic approach make this really enjoyable to watch. Yet the film is not without its flaws: Basically, the film's central conflict kicks in too late, Jaysin's character arc is abandoned halfway through (pity, this one was full of opportunities), and the character of Jimmy comes across as a bit too good-natured, charming and as a matter of fact infallible to really work out.

Still, a perfectly entertaining movie, just a few feet short of being really great.
