Movie Info

New York City. Fall, 1995. Below the feet of Times Square tourists, down a long flight of stairs, is a world where topless dancers spin around poles and grind money out of the pockets of nameless faces. For most, it's a fantasy. For some, it's therapy. For a few, a confessional. But beyond the Main Stage, and behind the Men's Room door you'll find a different kind of performance going on - a grifter with more talent and charisma than most of the dancers. Meet Shoes, the bathroom attendant. He's been here three years. Will he stay, or will he go? All he knows, for now, is that as the masses enter, he has one objective - get whatever cash they're holding into his tip bowl. No easy task. And whether they leave money or not, one thing's for sure - they are no longer nameless, and whatever secrets they are trying to hide, are exposed in the bright light of the head.(c) Official Facebook

Critic Reviews for From The Head

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Despite its claustrophobic setting and small-scale concerns, this low-key drama proves unexpectedly diverting.

Griffith's wry dramedy is both a character study and a personal showcase, but his fatal flaw is that Shoes just isn't as interesting as the drunks, jerks, goons and dreamers who stumble into his lair to relieve themselves.

May 31, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

It's a film that examines the various types of people who frequent strip clubs but rather than judging them it just sort of represents their truths.

September 7, 2020 | Rating: 3.0/4.0 | Full Review…

An intriguing pop-psychology character study -- a movie of minor revelations but shrewd behavioral observations.

June 22, 2013 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

A remarkably assured debut.
