Wow! this movie was so much better then i expected. i was walking down the aisle of the local video store and was intrigued by the cover. i had heard a little about it before but Highway was definitely worth the rental price.
For one, the acting was superb. Jared Leto is an extraordinary actor and all of them had wonderful timing with every thing they did. The story is what wont leave my mind. A bizarre, maybe metaphoric way of looking at the power of life and the search for love. Some times it takes a violent disturbing movie to make an impact because we live in a world that is so full of distractions.
I would recommend this movie to any one with an open mind that is willing to experience life through some one else's mind. 10/10
