Hot Tomorrows Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P82954~Martin Brest~martinbrest]] was a student filmmaker when he made Hot Tomorrows for $33,000 -- practically nothing even by the standards of 1977. He went on to produce major Hollywood movies, including [[Feature~V5220~Beverly Hills Cop~beverlyhillscop]]. In this film, Michael ([[Performer~P41930~Ken Lerner~kenlerner]]) is a young New York writer who has moved to L.A. and who spends his days writing about his elderly aunt, when he is not busy exploring his obsession with death. He is spending Christmas Eve with Louis ([[Performer~P64853~Ray Sharkey~raysharkey]]), a visiting friend, and they choose some unusual sites in which to carry on their holiday discussions, including a mortuary and a retirement home. Though this short black-and-white feature was given high praise by critics, few have had a chance to see it. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
