The 'has-been' Hollywood Western actors, Mel Torres and Fred Fletcher, hear Fritz Frobisher will attend a screening of one of his movies in Arizona. They decide to go exact revenge on him for terrorizing them and other kids with a whip on their first set. To this end Mel's unenthusiastic daughter, Delilah, is persuaded to provide her decent car, and comes along all the way from L.A. Endless discussions about movies, simple philosophy and morality are interlaced with accidental and purely scare-induced horror. When they arrive, neither the screening nor Frobisher are anything like they imagined. Written by KGF Vissers

LOVED this modern road movie- Searchers 2.0!!
4 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a beautiful film- shot in Monument Valley! Dan Ferberg captured the mystery, awe, and danger of this magical place- pack your bags for this modern day road movie!

Alex Cox has a talent for casting great and under appreciated talent. Del Zamora, a Chicano chameleon of an actor- who always surprises with his unique and very human portrayals. Sy Richardson- adds texture & suspense. Ed Pansullo seems so real- I couldn't help but laugh and newcomer, Jaclyn Jonet, plays Deliah, the sassy & spirited daughter to Zamora- good job!

Alex Cox seems to be able to put his finger on the pulse of our times; I found myself annoyed, as the characters constantly text messaged through out the movie and their constant frustration & struggle over obtaining gasoline for their HUGE SUV- and then realized it was my own self, I was annoyed at- my own need for constant consumption and stimulation. Are we a culture of computer & gadget freaks who are so hypnotized by our toys, that we miss the people, places and obvious world issues, blowing out from under our noses? This movie made me think and reconsider some of the attitudes that behaviors that I have, as a plump bellied American- lulled by the media into a daze, as the world around us suffers from our gas & gadget driven lifestyle.

Keep bringing it on Alex Cox! You are one of the few storytellers who seems uninfluenced by corporate money making greed of the big studios. Thank you for telling it like it is!
