Over-the-top winter decor in the palm court at #thedrake. Old school hotel with such heart and soul.

Saw the amazing (and original) ovens in the bake shop of #thedrake hotel. From 1920, converted from coal to gas decades ago.

"Welcome to Fucktown!"
A hobo wanders into a crime-ridden neo-Sodom-and-Gomorrah run by a power-hungry villian -styled after TV Evangelists- named The Drake. Everyone is fair game to murderers, hustlers, dope-fiends, and depraved psychopaths. Sick of all the carnage, the hobo picks up a Remington 870 shotgun and begins to clean up the streets, one shitlicker at a time!
Originally conceived as a fake trailer to go with Quention Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse... I think this movie is a lot closer to what Grindhouse filmmaking should be. Yes... It's way better than Planet Terror and Death Proof, despite being lower budgeted. It looks better too, with over-saturated colors instead of over-bearing and digital scratches. I like Planet Terror and Death Proof respectively. But I'll always be honest on this page and my honest opinion is that Hobo With A Shotgun is an insanely well-crafted film that satisfies everyone with a penchant for exploitation.
What makes it stand out from other "throwback" films is that it feels genuine. It doesn't replicate the styling or storyline of any previous Grindhouse film. Instead, it has the attitude. Like all great exploitation films, Hobo With A Shotgun works in extremes. The violence and crude behavior is almost nonestop... but it never feels like an imitation of anything specific.
We are given some sparse room to breathe. The Hobo has some memorable monologues and a soliloquy that add a lot of heart and compassion to the story.
But the violence is a huge selling point. People are sliced, diced, gutted, burned, maimed, splattered, and spewed left and right. It's all meanspirited and overwhelming... but this movie has its tongue firmly planted in it's own cheek.
The best way to put it is that this movie is so cruel it becomes a joke. It does this on purpose and it does this with a smile. I laugh every time I watch this one. It's a combination of the off-the-wall writing and hyper narrative. Something about two greaser-style hoods using a flamethrower on a school bus full of crying children really makes me chuckle... if... if you know what I mean... heh...
