Bleeder & Bates: Opening sequence
This is the opening sequence taken from a time-coded work print that recently surfaced of my movie Bleeder & Bates which I shot in 1989. The story tells of an investigation into the murder of a down-and-out prize fighter that leads Detective Bates into a Machiavellian game of survival where nothing is what it appears to be.
At the premiere of Bleeder & Bates, which was held at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, actor Allen Garfield said that 'Bleeder' reminded him of Wim Wender's The State of Things in which he played 'Gordon' the producer.
