Movie Info

A local bar in Las Vegas is a bar for gambling, LOSING GROUND is the story of one such place. Seven people come in, interact, strike up friendships of convenience, win, lose, and go home.Bryan Wizemann's haunting and elegiac feature film debut is a contemporary portrait of ritual and superstition, intimacy and estrangement. In direct contrast with the current zeitgeist of a Las Vegas myth, LOSING GROUND is a personal and closely observed work on the addictions of human nature and the self-created purgatories that often define a life. This film also attempts a new kind of realism, one of patience and observation that is confined to a single location over a single night.-- © Official Site


Critic Reviews for Losing Ground

All Critics (4)

The film, with its muted but potently charged minimalism, has much to convey about how economic and emotional uncertainties of a greed culture steeped in narcissistic myth and fantasy, cripple people's lives emotionally.

WBAI Web Radio

It is fascinating filmmaking that gets to the core of humanity, scrapes out even the most bottommost parts of it, and holds it up to examine it.

Film Threat

Losing Ground has all the hallmarks of a low-budget first feature, including painful earnestness, shaky acting and strident moralizing.

Las Vegas Weekly

There's not a bad performance in the lot, each fulfilling a sadness and a greater sense of danger that comes with satisfying their craving.
