"Pickings" is an interesting little revenge film about a single mom who runs a family bar in a fictional town (Port City), one day some mobsters come seeking to collect protection and things escalate quickly, the scene becomes violent and the gangsters end up dead. This sets up a turf war between a women who is on the run from a really violent past (and the filmmakers reveal the past nicely throughout the movie, in little pieces) and a local gangster who's out for blood. The plot isn't really that innovative or new and you can clearly see where the filmmaker gets his inspiration from (cough... Tarantino), but overall the movie does a really good job of keeping your eyes glued to the screen and I think it delivered. There are some really light moments and some really dark moments which is a staple of these types of B movies. The filmmakers also combined film noir and Spaghetti Westerns in an interesting way and the film does not lack in style, sometimes thou that style can get really distracting and it can take you out of the story, but for the most part it keeps you engaged.

A Wonderful B Movie!Reviewed byelliotr-38088Vote: 8/10
I've sat watching this and thought after 20 minutes what the hell is this about? now I've watched it all the way through I'm still confused, I can't make out wether this is suppose to be a Clint Eastwood style 70's Italian western a cartoon, a mafia revenge movie or a Tarrantino movie has it just took all of that and put it in a blender. Definately wouldn't recommend any one to pay money to see this. Hell what do I know I'm not a critic I'm just someone who watchees films
As someone who considers himself a fan of independent films, and genre films in particular, I found a lot to enjoy in this movie. It's a mixture of film noir, spaghetti westerns and comic book genre films like Sin City and 300, all that made behind the mask of a super-stylized independent film. The visuals, editing and acting was all top-notch. The story was gripping, and the main character of Jo was bad-ass! Fans of niche genre films would love this movie.
