Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets is an intriguing hybrid, melding an authentic environment with a constructed reality. Set in Las Vegas dive bar The Roaring Twenties – an unglamorous, yet accurate microcosm of America’s forgotten fringes – it acts as quiet voyeur to its marginalised patrons. As they drunkenly move in unison, the film captures the full spectrum of their emotions, creating an elegant and empathetic portrait of a complicated community whilst pushing the verité documentary form and blurring the lines of fact and fiction.
