It's not about 8-tracks
31 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this probably 5 years back and used to work at Kinko's with Russ Forster but we've since lost touch. Really enjoyed the film ... interesting characters that Russ encountered in his journeys.

Interestingly, the film is not really about 8-track tapes at all. The people (I call them characters because they are characters in many ways), certainly share 8-track interest in common but they are quirky. I never figured out exactly why they are attracted to the obsolete technology. Why do I still own an 8-track player/recorder and what do I have in common with these people? My theory is that the people share a bit of a misfit self image, but the film does not choose to make this judgment for you.

Very entertaining, recommended if you can find it. I have no idea how you could get a hold of this these days. It made the indie film tour 5 years ago, I don't think it ever made it beyond that :-(
