review by
Mike Haberfelner

A small town in Upstate New York: It's Sunday evening, and the thought of a shitty workweek alone makes Ellis (Shaun Rose) get drunk on cheap rum - which only results in a nasty hangover the next day, and still having to work his shitty job ... and his job's shitty in the literal sense of the word, as he's a cleaner, and as his co-workers Bill (Bruce Rose sr) and Jason (Charles Trainosky) are both somehow related to the owner of the company, it's usually up to Ellis to clean the toilets and do all the really disgusting work. Ellis sure tries to change his situation, but there are only that many jobs he can do in his hometown, and while he applies to most of them, that doesn't mean he's taken on by anyone. But whatever shit his week is, the weekends are an entirely different story as he gets to see his kids (Adrianna Rose, Keenan Rose) who are with his divorced wife during the week, and whatever the chaos the children create, Ellis feels they're well worth it. But on Sundays, the kids return to their mum, and the next Monday's already in sight ...

 

I'm sure that in reading, Upstate Story sounds like a very drab and depressing affair, and to a point it is - but this isn't a film supposed to just get you down, it's actually quite entertaining, too, thanks to Shaun Rose's rather poignant off-screen relation that at times sets a few ironic notes as well, and likewise the choice of images to go with the narration gives the film a hint of humour - without ever cracking an actual joke of course. But all this is what makes the movie really relatable and even enjoyable despite the underlying sadness, and really worth a look.
