Bad Cars: Living with Unexpected Obstacles and Imperfect Moments

Bad Cars: Living with Unexpected Obstacles and Imperfect Moments

Bad Cars is a new short film by Anthony Deptula, the writer and star of the wonderful independent film One Too Many Mornings, which premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. Dating in Los Angeles is hard, especially when you have a terrible car. Bad Cars is a romantic comedy about a first date with a simple problem; neither person wants the other to see their crappy car. While there is elegant storytelling with an abundance of clever humor, there is also an honest and painful view of the loneliness and vulnerabilities of life in a city filled with unexpected obstacles and imperfect moments.

One Too Many Mornings: A Tale of Sordid Depravity and Honest Vulnerability

One Too Many Mornings: A Tale of Sordid Depravity and Honest Vulnerability

One Too Many Mornings is the acclaimed independent film directed by Michael Mohan, which made its world premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. The film is an expertly constructed ode to being free and easy, sexually depraved, drunkly confused and darkly lonely, all at the same time. On the surface, One Too Many Mornings is the humorous tale of a longtime friendship between two young men, Fischer and Peter, whose relationship has become complicated by nights of drunken debauchery. Between Fischer’s drinking problem and Peter’s troubles with his long-term girlfriend Rudy, there is an abundance of irreverent humor, but also an honest and painful view of male vulnerability.

Beneath the more obvious sense of depraved comedy, there’s a solid and confident quality to this movie that’s rarely seen in the world of young independent filmmaking. One Too Many Mornings has a fluidity that allows its characters to slip in and out of different psychological states. Sometimes they’re clearly using each other, but at other times they seem to have bonded because each completes the other in some painfully damaged, yet also wonderful way. There is a sincerity that shines through the film, a familiarity with the trials of young people trying to find their way in the face of harsh reality, and with a realization that the sense of delusion provided by depraved debauchery must ultimately be relinquished.
