The secondary characters are as well-defined as the leads.
At its best, this is a movie of unusual integrity and insight.
Attempting to ratchet up tension, Bross relies on forced crosscutting and stagey clichés.
Brody, who has the lean-and-hungry charisma of a skinny young De Niro, turns his potentially cliched, tortured artist character into somebody from whom you'd actually want to buy a drink.
I don't know anything about the background of director Eric Bross or screenwriter Tom Cudworth, but I'm guessing at least one used to be a bartender.
There are a million stories in the big city, we understand from the start -- and this isn't one of them.
Solid performances, capable visuals, and the honesty of the interracial subject matter make Restaurant stand out from the typical 'I'm an artist, not really a waiter' pack.
Thankfully, the film itself is a whole lot better than the name might indicate.
Restaurant is like an hour long TV drama caught somewhere between Showtime and WB.
The film is blessed by two fine lead performances, as Brody and Neal both offer naturalistic, understated interpretations.
Features impressive performances from the entire cast and successfully mixes personal drama with larger issues.
Maybe you'd do better cooking at home than heading for this Restaurant tonight.
A great movie! A favorite.
