The closing night of a Las Vegas dive bar plays out in inebriated and immersive fashion in this candid cinematic portrait.

Fraternal filmmakers Bill and Turner Ross capture the last rounds at Roaring 20s, a dingy bar tucked away in the shadows of Las Vegas’s glittering lights. As the regulars gather to give their second home a final send-off, the joy and melancholy of the gathering is illustrated through the sumptuously shot stream of warmth, tragedy, humour and insight delivered by the patrons as the drinks keep flowing and the early hours of the morning arrive. Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets is a compelling film that plays with notions of community through its brazen mix of truth, artificial construct and the space in-between.
