The Velocity of Gary (Not His Real Name)

Every bit as awkward as its title, this feature written by James Still and directed by Dan Ireland (The Whole Wide World) might have worked as a solo theater piece, its original form, though it's so lugubrious one can't be sure even of that. The title street hustler (Thomas Jane) is picked up by a porn star (Vincent D'Onofrio) in New York, and winds up in a menage a trois with a doughnut shop waitress (Salma Hayek). The hustler and waitress are rivals who hate each other, but when the porn star winds up in a hospital with AIDS and the waitress becomes pregnant, they're forced to renegotiate their relationship. There's an effort to poeticize the milieu of these characters, but they all come across more as types than as individuals. With Olivia d'Abo.
