Storyline

Gil and Hank are two independent truckers who run into problems when they are forced to pay off traffic managers to get loads. They also have to pay off highway cops when their rigs are overweight and bank loans but consider themselves lucky just to be able to keep up the interest payments. Add to that a small, frizzy-wigged highway hooker named Janice, who tempts them with her lurid charms. Written by alfiehitchie

Exploitation meets art
18 October 2000 | by (georgia) – See all my reviews

The drive-in's redneck trucker genre gets the art house treatment in this intense, grungy 70's obscurity. Two novice independent truck drivers pick up the wrong passenger. Surreal, somewhat supernatural and soaking in sexual politics that are definitely up for heated debate. There's a lot going on here, especially with it's subtle depiction of independent business vs. corporate giants and unions. This is independent film as it was and should be. Essential.
