There has never been a film quite like DEADBEAT AT DAWN. Jim Van Bebber’s shot-on-16mm masterpiece came careening out of Dayton, Ohio in 1988 like a runaway lawnmower blade, setting the standard for all nihilist street-gang movies to follow. Visceral, unspeakably violent, and fearless, Van Bebber could have easily lost his life making this film. You may lose yours watching it. A major work of outsider film art. Don’t miss!
