Pennell's follow-up to The Whole Shootin’ Match is another rough gem - kind of a Texas-made version of The Iceman Cometh in which we observe a cluster of regulars gathered together for the closing of their favorite bar. Wonderful ensemble performances enrich the soulful twang of this movie, which was written by co-producer Kim Henkel. Before the feature, Pennell's short film "Hell of a Note" will screen. (See reminiscences about Eagle Pennell on p.44 of this week's Screens section.)
