Good for Nothing Blues

A MICRO-BUDGET stoner/crime comedy shot in Perth is going down a storm with WA cinemagoers.

Alex Lorian’s Good For Nothing Blues has already been shown in multiple venues including packed-out Telethon Community Cinemas, and will have a sixth screening at next month’s WA Made Film Festival.

The movie follows Calvin and his dole-bludging friends who suddenly come into money when they win $200,000 on the lottery.

Having cash for the first time seems like the answer to all their prayers, but soon enough their investments go astray and they get caught in a web of drugs, debt, gangs and cops.

“I’m really excited to screen Good For Nothing Blues again,” Lorian told the Voice.

“I’ve received so much positive feedback personally and everyone involved is saying the same.

“I really think the film we’ve got here is something unique and different.

“It’s a lot of fun and a bit emotional, but the outlandish characters of the film are really something.”

Good For Nothing Blues has proved popular with critics and was recently nominated for Best Narrative Feature Film at the WA Screen Culture Awards.

It’s the second feature length film for Lorian, following his 2017 debut Subject 36.

Lorian also recently worked as cinematographer on Perth filmmaker Isabella Jacqueline’s upcoming movie Darkest Age.

Good For Nothing Blues is one of 67 local films to be shown at the WA Made Film Festival, which includes three world premiere feature films, a world premiere web series, a live musical performance, over 55 short films, a filmmaking workshop and the return of WA’s only smartphone filmmaking competition.
