Movie Info

The director of such off-beat independent films as In the Soup, director Alexandre Rockwell once again teams with that film's star to deliver this Los Angeles-based comedy concerning superstition and intersecting lives. Things aren't looking so good for television clown Banana's (Steve Buscemi) career, and the fact that his estranged wife, Suzi (Jennifer Beals), has just been arrested for assaulting his girlfriend, Lily (Karyn Parsons), just serves to compound Banana's despair. Teaming with sidekick Binky (Peter Dinklage) to enlist the aid of bail-bondsman Mo (David Proval), Banana and Binky discover that Mo is currently negotiating the release of hip-hop mogul Lenny's (Daryl Mitchell) wife, Sandra (Rose Rollins). The hapless group soon teams to help Mo by finding a suitable kidney donor for the bail-bondsman's ailing son, and though they quickly happen across a drunk (Peter Stormare) who fits the bill, the trouble comes in keeping the prospect in the hospital. Doing their best to help Mo's son under increasingly chaotic circumstances, personal tensions flare as each character desperately tries to simultaneously battle their own inner demons.

I hope it'll be many moons before I see another such laughless comedy.

Audience Reviews for 13 Moons

"13 Moons" is one of the most poorly assembled, incomprehensibly photographed, and incoherent pieces of trash I have ever seen. Alexandre Rockwell, may God have mercy on your soul.

Some great names (some before their stardom bloomed) are roped into a low budget hand-cam movie that is irritating it its low-fi approach and wears the audience patience down in the first 10 minutes with wobbly, sea-sick inducing visuals and bland confused script.

Not sure how I came across this movie or even why I purchased it, but that is like a number of movies that end up in my collection. When movie first started I said what the F***? But as movie continued I got drawn into what turns out to be a somewhat unusual film with 10 pretty wild characters. The film has beautiful imagery, great music and fantastic acting. It features a huge, eclectic ensemble cast in a wild series of events that are, at first glance, pretty far-fetched. But the result is surprisingly smooth and genuine. Its worth 3 1/2 Stars and should be added to any independent movie Collection
