The post-scuzz ‘90s are at a peak and director John Herzfeld (who cut his teeth on ABC Afterschool Specials like Stoned) is poised to burst onto the scene with the indulgently glam, violent, and playful grab bag that is 2 Days in the Valley; in the words of the late, great Roger Ebert, “it looks like a crime movie, but crime is the medium, not the message.” With a bevy of intertwined narratives and an ensemble cast of heavy hitters on the come-up—including the stunning Charlize Theron in her breakout performance as this decade’s femme fatale to the ‘80s’ Sharon Stone—Herzfeld’s ambitious quick wit takes up the poster boy of the moment—the hitman—along with all those jolted in his wake. Quick-witted and tongue-in-cheek, like Short Cuts meets Pulp Fiction, it’s a quintessentially ‘90s hodge-podge: crime, Hollywood glamour, melodrama, and pure inertia, shaken and stirred Cinefamily-style for a not-to-be-missed cast and crew reunion!
