Does anyone know where I can rent this movie?

I went with a friend to see URBAN MYTHOLOGY at a festival, and wow! By the end credits, I was exhausted. This movie has a plot that defies anything I've ever seen. The actors have a heyday carrying us through a series of mishaps and mayhem as various quirky characters get choked, shot, framed for a murder they DID commit, sodomized and generally manipulated. By who? The screenwriter, I guess.

URBAN MYTHOLOGY has the potential to be like AMERICAN GRAFFITTI or FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH where a cast of unknown actors makes the most of a new director and a great script. The only actors I recogonized were the mom from the TV show "Boy Meets World" and the guy who plays her husband was on "Beverly Hills 90210", plus an actress who does a lot of Kevin Smith movies.

The camerawork is great, and doesn't try to intrude on the story and the acting, but find a style all on its own. If you have a chance to see this movie, check it out, but make sure you bring a notepad and slide rule.
