Storyline

Jack is caught with the wife of his employer, a Vegas thug. The thug sends goons after Jack, who convinces his best friend, Pilot, to flee with him. Pilot insists that they head for Seattle, but doesn't tell Jack why. The goons learn from Pilot's drug source where the youths are headed, and they follow, hell bent on breaking Jack's feet. On the road, Jack and Pilot give a ride to Cassie, a distressed young woman. She and Jack hit it off. They pick up an aging stoner headed to Seattle for Kurt Cobain's memorial, and they help a circus sideshow family. Why is Pilot so set on Seattle, will the goons catch Jack, and is there any way the friends' competing needs can be resolved? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A step away from ordinary...
24 April 2003 | by (Boston, Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

There are a few things you have to keep in mind when watching a film like this, where the director's vision is a bizarre, artistic twist on a certain demographic, in this case, outer-Vegas trailer-trash. First off, he is showing some incredible chemistry between two unique characters, who are actually really fascinating people (Leto & Gyllenhaal). Secondly, whoever made a post about this film not holding itself together needs to take a step back for a second. As a film production major, I look for different styles and techniques while watching films. So maybe I just notice the cool little things that the Director does more.... or maybe some people just can't get past the bizarre story. I think this film was designed to take the viewer on a ride that many of them have not been on. The RAVE scenes where intense, and beautifully filmed. The visit to see the Dand-E-fine girls is classic. Gyllenhaal pulls off one of the most convincing stoners ever on film, and the kid is just - the man. Leto is brilliant in anything he ever has or ever will be in, the man is incredibly talented, and this project is no different. Blair does her job, she fits the part... not a huge fan, but it's certainly not a big enough deal to take anything away from the film, on any level. Jeremy Piven is a GOD. PERIOD. He delivers one of the best monologues in recent memory. John C. McGinley is always a nice addition to any movie. So with all these cool things to say about this little indie film, how come everyone doesn't agree? Maybe we weren't looking for the same thing when we watched it. But isn't that the case a lot of the time? Then why bad-mouth this film? They're being petty, that's why. Listen, I think that any film that serves its purpose and entertains should be given a chance... it's a cool little bizarre film. Enjoy.
