Story


A train pulls into its final station and a Hobo hops from a freight car. He has dreams of a fresh life in a new city, but finds himself trapped in an urban hell instead. A city where criminals rule the streets, landlords evict single mothers in the middle of the night, and where the city's crime boss, The Drake, reigns supreme with his sadistic, homeless-killing sons, Slick & Ivan. Through the chaos, the Hobo comes across a shop window displaying a second hand lawn mower and a shotgun, and decides it's time to cut the grass, make the city beautiful and start a new way of life. But after witnessing the brutality that encompasses this city, he realizes the only way to make a difference in this place is with a gun in his hand and two shells in its chamber.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..more of an engagement with the non-cinematic world than Hobo ever really displays..”
by Mark Holcomb [Village Voice]
“..wry touches like abrupt splices, missing scenes, and scratch-streaked prints added to the fun..”
by Scott Tobias [npr.org]
“..looks like a garish cartoon puked up by a filmmaker overstuffed with cheap thrills and celluloid scuzz..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
