Tribeca 2018 Review: Black Label

Actresses with masks in BLACK LABEL. Photo credit: Roger Llonch.

The purge meets pulp fiction with a touch of grease. 

A night attendant at a gas station gets held up by three woman.  Finally confronted with the dilema that he was fooled by one of them, the gas station attendant  confronts his assailant only to find out that she is actually into him. All the meanwhile the night security is out doing some back alley deal of his own for melons.  Not just any melons – black label melons.  Yum.

Best part of the film was the dance routine although I could see this short being reworked into a longer length film.
