Description
When Hollywood B actor Dirk Greylocke’s career falters, he turns to robbery as a means to survive. Perpetually hopeful a movie part will appear he pesters his agent who finally drops him. In despair, he sees no alternative but to continue with a life a crime. A history of insanity in his family weighs on his mind as his dead brother speaks to him in seemingly and increasingly real conversations. Greylocke is further conflicted by uncertainty in his masculinity made worse by his specter-like brother’s taunt of: I won’t have a faggot for a brother. Repeatedly, he passes up opportunities to sexually molest his helpless female victims conflicted between wanting and repulsion. Greylocke commits robbery after robbery as the cops close in aided unknowingly by one of his victims seeking revenge. His persona as The Brentwood Burlgar becomes a source of adulation he doesn’t have as an actor that further drives his compulsion for crime. The culmination is a dramatic scene with Greylocke that leaves his survival and the revenge of his victim in doubt.
