Art school students will especially relate (by crispinrosenkranz)
There are so many funny references about going off to art school in this film, and Nat, who is on his way to Los Angeles, has an amazing misadventure on the road with Richard, who hitches a ride with him. I was reminded of all the eccentric friends I have hung out with who on one hand you despise and on another you desire their company because of who they are and what they can do for you. What a well written and performed piece. Saw it opening weekend in Los Angeles. LOL fun.
Places character before the comedy (by CubsandCulture)
There is one big negative about this film that I want to talk about up front. The cinematography is very harsh, overexposed in a lot of places. I am sure it is a function of the budget but the sharpness of the image and the overall texture of the colors is really too hard for the underlying material. The tonal dissonance robs the film of some emotions. The direction-i.e. framing, staging, blocking-itself is quite good. The director manages to find a different style for shooting scenes in a moving car and she consistently uses it to great effective. The film's pace just moves and the <more>
overall cinematic quality of the film is quite good. I just wish they used a softer lighter palette. It is not enough of an issues to prevent full enjoyment of the film.The script is quite good. It manages to be funny and touching while never falling completely into either cliche or contrivance. There are common road trip film beats present-i.e. car breaks down, bar fight, rekindling of old relationships, theft etc. but they are all configured to be more organic and realistic than they usually are. The film's greatest strength is it places character before broad humor. So much of the hi-jinks comes from Richard being an glorious hot mess in a way that is so common.This was a very nice find.
Greatly enjoyed this fantasy film of a young man driving to LA to continue his education in photography and on his way he gives a stranger a ride to Vegas. The stranger is both a life lesson, to the young man, in the realities of living beyond the protective parental middle class environment and in self discovery.A very well scripted, acted, and photographed film of a road trip story! My only grip with story is the nominal ending of the flick.
Very enjoyable road movie/coming of age story (by CarsonTrent)
A road movie/coming of age story which navigates with humor through day to day guy talk between two strangers meeting on the highway of life.What begins as a chance meeting quickly turns into a life initiation for the young Nat on his way to college. The odd worldly Richard seems to be just what the young Nat needed to shed the luke-warm sense of security of his comfort zone.Fantastic acting by Mantzoukas which is given more room than usual to play and creates a truly memorable character. Loved his nuggets of wisdom, especially the ones followed by complete erratic acts. Great supporting cast <more>
made up of some other familiar faces. Enjoyed the music, too.
