Mediocrity in Black and White
Brewster McGee is a laboured made-in-Vancouver comedy with very little going for it. It was obviously a student film and features broad actors each doing a different accent. The character of Brewster is an arrogant, foul mouthed, redneck, who lives out of his car, and parks in a fast food parking lot every day, spouting his philosophies to his best friend, a hippie. They befriend an emotional fast food employee, hang out and ... the end.
The film is extremely short, and perhaps for the best. If it has anything going for it, it's the stylish black and white cinematography. The end credits border on Ed Woodian territory as they go on for a full twelve minutes, listing the crew while simultaneously giving us a tracking shot of Vancouver's notorious East Hastings Street.
