13 Moons – Movie 109 of 365

07 May

13 Moons 2002If you’ve been following along you know about my love of ensemble casts and multiple storylines that intersect and weave themselves together.  13 Moons features both of these elements.  Although at times a bit slow and overall not that exciting it does tell an overall heart warming tale of transformation.  First we start with Bananas (Steve Buscemi) and Binky (Peter Dinklage), two TV clowns.  Bananas is having an existential crisis and no longer wants to be Bananas anymore but a new character.  The result, both Bananas and Binky are fired.  But it gets worse, Bananas’ estranged wife is in town and headed towards his apartment.  The problem is his girlfriend is there as well.

Mo Potter (David Proval) is a bail bondsman who has just been saddled to watch his son for the night.  He knows little to nothing about the kid, this will become real apparent later, and has no bond with the kid at all.  He is pretty much on call for rapper Lenny (Daryl Mitchell) who needs him to go bail his girlfriend, who is pregnant with his child, out of jail.

Owen (Pruitt Taylor Vince) is a priest having a crisis of faith.  He no longer hears God’s voice.  On a whim he walks into a strip club.

Somehow all of their lives will be thrown together in a way that mostly makes sense.

I wanted to love this movie, it had potential, but I can only say I like it.  There were slow parts and unfortunately one of the major elements, Slovo (Peter Stormare) the drug addicted, alcoholic, crazy man that is nearly indestructible, not only drove me crazy, but also is the source of most of the movies plot holes.

That being said Buscemi and Dinklage are pretty solid in the movie as well as Vince, who gets a bit typecasted but he plays the big, quiet, conflicted guys so well.
