In November from Sacred 9 Film director J. Antonio from New York decided to make a film based on some true life stories in the life of doormen… coming from his own experiences as well…

The film starts out with James (Torres) as a young man on his first night as night watchmen of a high rise.

The first thing I enjoyed about the film is that the majority of the film was in black n White the second is how many of the people acting seemed like real people.

There were certainly some odd characters coming and going including one actor “Timothy Cox” I knew of whose played in a short film called “Here Lies Joe” I’d seen and written about before….

I also think this film is all about the hopes and dreams of the many people whom either notice James or do not as there are many people in these types of positions that never get credit for what they do….

Just like your local bartender and you r dentist become your therapist in a sence so can your door man… with as many situations that happen to James and the band of night people whom end up being there for him when at first they were insulting to him at first….

I really don’t want to say too much more but this film was entertaining and I believe biographical and totally recommend those that haven’t seen this film go see it I enjoyed it as a fresh Breath of air.

I think this was a very honest night of the crazy that can happen on a regular basis in The as they say city that never sleeps but doesn’t mean that it isn’t strange…. espesially when an exorcism is involved…
