Triple Bogey on a Par Five Hole is a 1991 independent film written and directed by Amos Poe. The movie focuses on the story of a young couple living in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Mark and Melissa. Both of them are struggling artists, trying to make it big in the art world. Eric Mitchell stars in the lead role of Mark, whereas Daisy Hall plays the role of Melissa. Alba Clemente, a well-known art curator, also appears in the movie as herself.

The movie starts with Mark and Melissa's relationship going through a rough patch. Mark, a budding photographer, is unable to get any work done and is suffering from creative blockage. On the other hand, Melissa, a talented painter, is frustrated that her work is not getting the recognition it deserves. Their relationship takes a turn for the worse when Melissa tries to sell one of Mark's photographs to a gallery without his permission.

To make matters worse, Mark's father is gravely ill, and he is unsure of what to do about his own life. Mark struggles with his own insecurities and self-doubt, leading him to question whether he is good enough as an artist or a partner. Meanwhile, Melissa becomes increasingly detached and enigmatic, leading Mark further away from her.

Their relationship takes a turn when Melissa introduces Mark to Alba Clemente, a prominent art curator. Alba takes an interest in Mark's work and offers to showcase his photographs in her gallery. However, Mark is not entirely sure if Alba's interest in his work is genuine, leading to a rift between Alba and Mark.

As the movie progresses, we see Mark and Melissa's relationship become more complicated as they struggle to find their place in the art world. The movie is an exploration of the New York art world and the challenges faced by young artists trying to establish themselves.

Triple Bogey on a Par Five Hole draws its name from a golf term that refers to a triple bogey, the score of three strokes over par on a given hole, which metaphorically represents Mark's struggles in his personal and professional life.

Amos Poe's direction is distinctive, with a raw and grainy style that captures the essence of 1990s New York City. The cinematography is captivating, with shots that beautifully capture the city's bustling streets and dimly lit buildings. The movie's soundtrack is also notable, featuring an eclectic mix of alternative rock, jazz, and classical music that complements the movie's tone and mood.

Overall, Triple Bogey on a Par Five Hole is an excellent portrayal of the struggles and frustrations of young artists trying to make a name for themselves in the highly competitive world of the art scene. The movie is evocative and thought-provoking, giving us a peek into the creative process and the emotional turmoil that goes with it. The performances of Eric Mitchell, Daisy Hall, and Alba Clemente are impressive and etch the characters in our minds. It is a must-watch for anyone who loves independent cinema and a glimpse into the art world's inner workings.
