  • Laws of Gravity

    1991. USA. Written and directed by Nick Gomez. With Peter Greene, Edie Falco, Adam Trese. The enormously influential 1992 debut of Nick Gomez, hailing from the NYC independent production company The Shooting Gallery, Laws of Gravity stars Peter Green, Edie Falco, and Adam Trese in a tale of small-time criminals during one violent 72-hour period. The breathless, handheld 16mm camerawork by Jean de Segonzac, which always seems to be racing to catch up with the characters, made its mark on generations of subsequent filmmakers. Gomez discussed the film with Hal Hartley in Filmmaker’s Fall 1992 debut issue, which also included Peter Broderick’s seminal piece on no-budget filmmaking, where the movie’s $38,000 production budget was posted in full. 98 min.
