Shifting from one pocket to another, from one man’s drama to another, a lowly dollar bill, ‘one buck’ takes us on an odyssey through the heart of a forgotten town in Louisiana.
Though I do not approve of them flash backs can be used effectively on occasion. This is not one of those occasions. The cast act up to a poor script in this bore of a film and some credit is due. For me it also suffers from a clichéd and predictable storyline in which the baddies are all bad and the goodies are bad too but with reason, and we are expected to sympathise. But it is impossible to identify with the two dimensional characters in this film and any attempted symbolism in a dollar bill is pure tosh. Don’t waste your time.
