2007. USA. Written and directed by Chris Fuller. With Kayla Tabish, Travis Maynard, Lewis Brogan. Set against the backdrop of racial unrest in 1996 St. Petersburg, Florida, Fuller's striking debut feature presents a trio of disaffected, angry, and frequently bored teens who yearn for change but mostly just drift and hook up in lonely diners and nocturnal parking lots in this "dirty, dirty town by a dirty, dirty sea." Precisely shot and sound-designed, Loren Cass fully evokes a state of aimless frustration and barely suppressed rage that extends its relevance far beyond its particular period setting. 83 min.
