Reaches for something just as truthful as either pure doc or pure fiction, finding a hybrid place in the middle that makes it no less powerful.

Blurs the boundary between documentary and feature filmmaking, making for a playful, compelling sui generis work.

"Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets" may not be the straight-faced documentary it looks like, but it's a sober-eyed document of our times nonetheless.

Top Critic

It's "The Bachelorette" wed to "The Iceman Cometh": the setup is staged, but the tears are real.

If you appreciate... laid-back observational stuff that blurs truth and fiction -- Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets will be your new favorite movie. If that's not your bag, no shade. It's not for everyone.

April 24, 2020 | Full Review…

If Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets succeeds in any one thing, it's in capturing the wandering, picaresque continuity of a really good night on the lash, peopled by friends and familiars who seem to come in and out of our own personal frame.
