Movie Info

19-year-old Jack Ariamehr toils daily as a sign spinner on the street corners of New York. But under the gaze of the Statute of Liberty, he dreams of bigger things -and who wouldn't? No one is more aware of this than Jack's teacher, Bobby Blue Day - an ex-Hollywood screenwriter who shows up at Jack's apartment early one morning eager to talk about Jack's screenplay. To Bobby's astonishment, J.F.K. Ariamehr has written the best screenplay he has ever read. And Bobby will do anything to get a piece of this last chance at the American dream.

Critic Reviews for 3 Holes and a Smoking Gun

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

  • While it might have made for a mildly diverting stage thriller -- the hugely successful Deathtrap, for instance, was built on similarly absurd contrivances -- the endlessly talky 3 Holes and a Smoking Gun founders onscreen.

  • "3 Holes and a Smoking Gun" proves that there's a chasm-wide difference between talking about what constitutes - and actually being - great writing.

  • Director Hilarion Banks dutifully captures all of it in a series of nicely shot extended takes, which would have been fine if the cast had been able to interact in some sort of uniform tone.

  • If you're in the mood for a talky little neo-noir potboiler, 3 Holes and Smoking Gun is just the ticket.

    Apr 28, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Actor James Wilder excels as a washed up screenwriter in this fascinating psychological thriller. He takes charge of the screen and never lets go.
