A serial killer is on the prowl in the badlands of Ozona, Oklahoma, and the travelers who intersect at a roadside cafeteria somewhere between Texas and New Mexico are destined to cross his path. They include a circus clown and his stripper girlfriend, grieving sisters, a trucker, and a woman who is taking her mother to see the ocean before she dies. Tying everything together even tighter is the presence of the local radio station, whose DJ and boss don't seem to be getting along too well. Written by Ary Luiz Dalazen Jr.<>

One of Robert Forsters Top Five performances
18 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Outside Ozona is a creepy, quirky offbeat web of interesting characters woven into a tapestry of American life on the fringes, in the hinterlands. Numerous standout character performances spice up a slow building story- including Kevin Pollak as an acerbic, grouchy clown, Penelope Ann Miller as his stripper girlfriend . For the music fan we have the great Taj Mahal as a late night radio DJ as well as Meat Loaf as his boss- they could be their own "cant stand each other" buddy flick.

The heart of the movie is in the performances of Kateri Walker and Robert Forster- he"s a trucker and she's a school teacher out of gas in unfriendly territory. My reason for writing this review is to alert fans of Robert Forsters work to this great performance- he is everything he is in Jackie Brown in this one --ENJOY
