Storyline

Five friends in Los Angeles are snapped out of their boredom and lethargy by a letter from their friend Nick, who disappeared months ago. In the letter, Nick invites them out to his home, now at "Mile Marker 40." They find Nick living in a trailer in the middle of the desert. Over the course of several days, the trampoline, some LSD and a poker game leave some of the friends changed, and some more the same than ever. Written by Kim

Funny film--what happened to it?
30 July 2001 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Funny black-and-white film shot mostly in the desert. Saw it at a film festival (LAIFF?). Good characters and some bizarre stuff, like a naked guy bouncing on a trampoline. Beautifully shot black-and-white widescreen (don't know by who), and a great jazz score (ditto). Heard it was going to get a real release under the name Hang Your Dog In The Wind (also listed here, which is confusing, but the one I saw was called Mile Marker 40, I think), but never saw it at theaters. Would deserve a couple weeks at an art house, but not commercial enough to do more than that. Still, wonder why it hasn't shown up on IFC or Sundance Channel. I'd like to see it again to see if it stands up. Some very funny scenes and a definitely unique director's vision, as I recall.
