A dramatic comedy set in the sweetly seductive – and treacherous – rock’n’roll world of Los Angeles. Allison Anders career launched in Sundance with Gas, Food, Lodging and in 1999 she was back with a film described by Geoffrey Gilmore for Sundance as “an exuberantly wry and insightful work that captures the essence of Los Angeles as an “industry town.” …Not since Nashville has the hustling, double dealing, treachery, and ruthlessness of wanna-bes, has-beens, and never-weres been so aptly and accurately displayed. It’s a universe full of characters usually portrayed as caricatures, but the intimate knowledge that Anders and Voss share allows them to create, sketch, and color in perfect detail a gleefully energetic romp that gets sharper as it goes along…….Vicious, yet hilarious, Sugar Town fully deserves to be this year’s centerpiece. It’s a masterful digression on love, fame, sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll with a little insight on how to get ahead in LA. “.
