“Spending twenty-four hours with a bunch of bar flies has never been this mesmerizing, this profound, this funny and sad.” – Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews

In the shadows of the bright lights of Las Vegas, it’s last call for a beloved dive bar known as the Roaring 20s. Its regulars, a cross section of American life, gather together for one final hurrah at their favorite local watering hole, as the audience gets a glimpse into the bar’s last 18 hours in business. Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets is a mosaic of disparate lives adrift in a failed society – disillusioned and reeling, teetering between dignity and debauchery, reckoning with the past as they face an uncertain future and singing as their ship goes down.  Expertly blurring the lines between fiction and non-fiction, this is a stirring, stinging, melancholy document of real people in an unreal situation, with the foggy memory of experience lost in empty shot glasses and puffs of smoke. (Dir. by Bill Ross IV and Turner Ross, 2020, USA, 98 mins., Not Rated)
