Movie Info

High school teacher Johnny Vincent from Yonkers dreams of becoming a famous singer/songwriter. Some nights he gets to perform in run-down bars where no one really listens to him. Shortly after his wife abruptly abandons him, Johnny starts dating waitress Lisa, a girl he knew in high school. For her the relationship is casual and purely physical, but Johnny yearns for something deeper. Despite Lisa's reservations, she accepts a hefty loan from him and does nothing to dissuade him from wooing her. But as time passes and he becomes more possessive, Lisa feels increasingly smothered. Matters get worse when Lisa's promiscuous mother meets Johnny's family and has a brief afternoon-long fling with one of his uncles. In time, Lisa feels so overwhelmed by Johnny that she breaks up with him, causing something inside him to snap. Johnny then undergoes a radical personality shift that affects both his personal and professional life. Though his behavior seems to portend disastrous tragedy, the makers of this low-budget independent drama chose to end the story on a much lighter note.more

Audience Reviews for Mr. Vincent

Interesting indie film, the low budget is an asset. The acting is fine, and the film is very realistic and believable. The filming in black and white may have been necessary budgetwise, but it is of no value to the film. Depressing and the lack of likeable characters doesn't help.
