Wash, Dry & Spin Out

No amount of shrinking, bleaching or scrubbing can salvage "Wash, Dry & Spin Out," a pathetically conceived drama that wastes the serious theme of how emotionally and sexually inadequate men abuse others.

No amount of shrinking, bleaching or scrubbing can salvage “Wash, Dry & Spin Out,” a pathetically conceived drama that wastes the serious theme of how emotionally and sexually inadequate men abuse others. Although writer-producer-director Dan Patton’s vid-shot work, running 90 interminable minutes (and utilizing two lensers who both requested to be left off the credits) would benefit from being a 15-or-so-minute short, brevity wouldn’t eliminate pic’s inability to convincingly stage a group of people in an all-night Laundromat terrorized and humiliated by a trio of young, drunk guys. One-week L.A. commercial run is much more than this future vidshelf dust-collector deserves.

Quickly established as bottom-rung jerks, Carl (Tyler Lindsay) and Gil (Jason Morck) cajole pal Jeff (Randy Thomas), blue over a break-up, out of his apartment for some “fun” at the Laundromat, where they waste no time in pestering every customer in sight. Serviced by a trashy hooker, the trio proceed to needle a contrived parade of ethnic and other minorities, all of whom are shown as so weak they never fight back. Any psychology is lost in a backwash of inept dramatics and staging.
