Storyline

In this largely avant-garde feature film, Rex is the member of a group of underground revolutionaries with an unknown agenda who receive their orders from picking letters out of a bowl of alphabet soup. Rex and his companion Nixie travel across the country and change their names with each stage of the story (the stages are separated by a countdown of numbers from 10 to 0). They begin in New York City and strive to make it to Los Angeles. Their adventures, misadventures and often bizarre happenstances form the bulk of the narrative. Written by thustlebird

Crazy Credits

The title appears on the screen in a long division problem. A "0" is the divisor and a "1" is the dividend. The quotient is the title "OUT". After the title appears onscreen, a character throws a stick of dynamite and people are seen running from left to right against a brick wall on which is written a number countdown from 10 to 0.

Most of you are TOO DAMN SIMPLE MINDED to even bother TALKING about this movie.
11 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really can't believe the number of negative reviews for this thought provoking film, which only goes to show that you are, no offense, mostly too stupid to even review it. This movie is not for those who are easily distracted, not for the 30 second sound bite reality TV mind, not for those who need the movie to do all the thinking for them. These are the reviews of people who cannot appreciate a painting if it doesn't look like a bowl of fruit or a naked Roman woman.

It should be quite obvious from the beginning (and I went into this movie with NO expectations as it was purchased from a 99 cent DVD rack under a different title - Deadly Drifter) that this movie is a surrealist exercise and that your standard plot devices and "beginning to middle to end" paradigm is NOT going to apply here. It's experimental in it's technique and is LOADED with subtext. It makes commentary on the futility and absurdity of the radical political movements of the 60's (and today???), the police state, drugs, sex, love, religion, sprituality, responsibility...but with a mixture of SUBTLETY (missing today) and experimental shock. Peter Coyote gives a nuanced performance as the protagonist "Rex/Carl" which ranges from detached observer to emotional easy rider, if you will...and that's about all I'll say without spoiling it for those who have the GUTS and open mindedness to come off of your shelves.
