  • This is the kind of movie that baffles Hollywood, because it isn't made from any known formula and doesn't follow the rules. show more

  • One of the most original films of recent memory, with an edge of black humor and punk sensibility--wickedly funny, ceaselessly inventive, and never boring. show more

  • A non-stop, shoestring trip with more adventures and a helluva lot more smarts than you'll find in most American movies...All in all, there's more plain fun to be had here in 10 minutes than in a whole hour on the road with that jerk Indiana Jones. show more
