this is a personal response to a question posed on RT: "What's your favorite dance scene in a movie?"... "Disco Bean" in "The Search for One-Eye Jimmy" i can't think of anything about this movie to not like... except that, just about, NOBODY has seen it! it has a huge cast of amazing actors: Samuel L. Jackson, Steve Buscemi, Anne Meara, Jennifer Beals... and some of which i saw for the first time in this movie and have grown to love: Sam Rockwell, John Turturro, Michael Badalucco, Tony Sirico, Nicholas Turturro, Aida Turturro, Holt McCallany... and even the famous boxer Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini! each role is memorable, but my favorites include: Samuel L. Jackson as "Col. Ron", Michael Badalucco as "Joe Head", Nicholas Turturro as "Junior", but IMHO John Turturro as "Disco Bean" is what makes me laugh the most when i think of this movie. as ridiculous as every character is they all feel completely believable. the story draws you in from the beginning of the search, and it builds in suspense until the whereabouts are revealed. it is funny throughout, doesn't drag, and the moment when "One-Eye Jimmy" returns is just as unexpected and ridiculous as every other character and situation in the movie. it's obviously low budget, and because of that you can appreciate it for how crappy it is. it seems to be improvised, and at some points i think you can catch the actors breaking character and laughing at each other. some of the funniest parts are off-hand remarks or happenings in the background that you may not catch the first time around. the caliber of the cast reveals how funny this movie is for how cheaply it was made and distributed. last i checked, not available on DVD or for download anywhere. i purchased a VHS copy, and hope to rip it to my computer so i hip more people to it!
