The Debt is a multi-narrative award-winning feature from writer/director Barney Elliott. It’s a reputable drama, and when The Debt is on a roll, it’s on par with Steven Soderbergh’s Traffic.
Faux-doc American Hero takes place in New Orleans, a city still overcoming its devastation post-Katrina. It’s in this state of recovery where a local named Melvin and his telekinetic powers find a meaning. He’s a persuasive street magician to those who need something to believe in and a wild partier to his compadres, but a disappointment to the ones he loves.
