Storyline

Bizarre and surreal road movie about a biker and his unlikely sidekick. On a quest to fulfill a friend's last wish, Joe takes to the desert road on his 1957 Harley-Davidson and meets a succession of odd characters, including Sam. Sam begins following Joe, on a quest of his own, which necessitates staying in Motel 9's wherever they go. Themes such as friendship, faith, and isolation are brought into sharp relief by strange situations, the lonely road, and the stark emptiness of the desert. There are also several humorous cameos. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

The movie is good!
10 August 2008 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

This movie definitely falls in between of what people like to see and what they like to hope for..

While most of the blockbusters, that come out nearly every week, filled up with the special effects, but the "Prophets" show the simplicity of the idea, and the execution is on the top level! Two guys, bikers, hook up out of the blue, and end up becoming more than just simple pals, because, Joe takes on a challenge to see to his new passed friend last will...

i would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see beyond the shine of Hollywood and glamour of most of the sunset strip.

View it, you may like it!! Cheers.
