Determinedly weird...
21 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

'Odd' is an understatement for this quirky black comedy about a tollbooth worker near Miami who tracks down his girlfriend's long-lost father, only to get into a fight with the guy and have the whole situation blow up in his face. Peculiar but also nostalgic--an interesting mix--what with its lazy-hazy ambiance and eclectic cast. Lenny Von Dohlan is a stand-out in the lead, plus it's always good to see Fairuza Balk. Like most films about dead-end lives, however, this one doesn't have any particular place to go, but there are pleasurable moments along the way. Canny direction from Salomé Breziner, who also wrote the script. Memorable and often marvelous. *** from ****
