Hobo With a Shotgun is the result of millions of viewers’ requests for a feature film rendition of a trailer screened between Tarantino and Rodriguez’s Grindhouse, and it kicks ass. Known for his off-the-wall and invasive cinematography, director Jason Eisner rejects lapses in action and gratuitous violence from the very first frame. The film’s lead, a nameless “Hobo” who is sick of the corruption in the recently renamed “Scum Town”, seeks vengeance against a gang of slick-haired, murder-hungry gangsters with just his shotgun. A story that, while exploitative and grossly funny, has its moments and speaks to the general public’s treatment of the homeless community.
