Storyline

In the middle of the Mojave desert rests an abandoned phone booth, riddled with bullet holes, graffiti, its windows broken, but otherwise functioning. Its identity was born on the Internet and for years, travelers would make the trek down a lonely dirt road and camp next to the booth, in the hopes that it might suddenly ring, and they could connect with a stranger (often from another country) on the other end of the line. This is the story of four disparate people whose lives intersect with this mystical outpost, and the comfort they seek from a stranger's voice: There is Beth, a troubled woman facing dilemmas with her love-life and a recurring, baffling crime; Mary, a young South African, who is contemplating selling her body for the funds to escape her dreadful existence; Alex, a woman who is losing her lover, Glory, to the belief she is plagued by aliens, and Richard, driven into desperation by a separation from his wife, who happens upon the booth after his failed suicide attempt....

Trivia

Based on an actual phone booth that accepted incoming calls, isolated in the Mojave Desert, which gained an online following. Callers from many countries dialed (619) 733-9969, later (760) 733-9969, to see who would answer (often people who hiked to the spot). The phone was removed at the request of the Mojave National Preserve in 2000, and per SBC policy, the phone booth numbers were retired for good. See more »

Good Independent flick....
11 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though I don't know the validity of the history of an actual "Mohave phone booth", the idea of a grass-roots internet site does remind me of the marketing plan for the Blair Witch Project. I saw "Mohave" at the 2007 Staten Island Film Festival and was a little disappointed that there was no Q&A afterward. Overall, this movie is of high professional quality from the acting, directing, sound, and editing...and of course producing. Definitely is of quality and ready for mass marketing. The only problem is this movie would have to be dumbed down to appeal to the masses. A must see if you want to watch a quality independent film. The magnetic tape, though...I didn't get it. Why wasn't there a Q&A in Staten Island???
