On the eve of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and on its final night before closing, a Las Vegas dive bar becomes a stage where its employees and barflies commiserate one last time. Filmmaking brothers Bill and Turner Ross train their keenly observed quasi-fiction on the lived-in atmosphere of a haunt, whose massed warmth and love conceal its patron?s worries?at least for a little while. BLOODY NOSE, EMPTY POCKETS is a carefully constructed yet oddly affecting record of an American sensibility at once straining to survive and ready for the end.
