I don’t normally stray from my Netflix instant queue for this blog, but a movie that is legally shared on YouTube fits my criteria for cheap (in this case free) instantly streamed movies. So I’m going to make an exception here.

I accidentally watched this movie. Ok. What does that mean? It means, my boyfriend snored me out of bed and I had to kill a couple of hours before he would get up and I would be able to go to sleep. So, what did I intend to do? I did your basic search on YouTube for various bloopers of actors and actresses I like. I came across this little gem, which didn’t fit my search criteria at all, quite by accident.

That was when I did a little bit of research on it. It turns out that this movie was made specifically by Shangrila Entertainment for Internet Distribution only. What does that mean? It means if you follow the link posted above, it will take you to the first part of a ten part movie that will blow your mind.

I can’t imagine how this movie made enough money to pay actors like Zachary Quinto, Josh Hartnett, Danny Devito and Rosario Dawson, but I’m not going to question my good luck.

The story takes place throughout ten different bars/establishments in Los Angeles in a single night, locking together seemingly independent characters in a twisting story that is both highly amusing and very gripping. Lots of strippers, implied violence and some very witty writing.

Free or not, this is the best movie I’ve seen in a month (except for “Drive”). I highly suggest you watch it.

Again, it is posted on YouTube by the company that made it. It is in ten different parts and is easily paused and started again as if they were cut into predetermined chapters. Really, if you’ve got time to blow, you won’t regret blowing it on this.

Overall Opinion – 5/5
