Storyline

Circle The Wagen is a feature-length buddy/road-trip/docu-dramedy that follows Dave, an idealistic adventurer and automotive ne'er-do-well, and his convivial co-pilot Charlie on their journey down Route 66 in a baby blue 1972 VW bus. Through mishaps and murals, gasoline baths and breakdowns the two discover a teeming underground of vintage VW diehards willing to help save "The Croc" from the scrap heap and rally her beleaguered owner on to California. Written by Ryan Steven Green and Charlie Pecoraro

Smile, Cringe, Laugh, and Cheer
21 June 2013 | by (Tucumcari, New Mexico) – See all my reviews

I had the honor of attending Circle the Wagen's sold-out world premiere at the Albuquerque Film & Media Experience and loved every moment of it. The VW Beetle limousine and long line of VW buses parked along Central Avenue in front of the Guild Cinema hinted that the movie was going to be something special. It didn't disappoint. You'll start out wondering what kind of nut would buy on eBay, sight unseen, a 1971 Volkswagen bus and try to drive it halfway across the country to get it home. But, it won't take you long to be glad that he did. You'll smile when you hear the distinctive sound of the air-cooled motor roaring to life and cringe each time it inevitably dies. You'll laugh at Dave's and Charlie's hapless attempts to get just a few more miles down the road. And, you'll cheer when the VW faithful come to the rescue, helping a couple of guys they had never even met before the journey began. So, if you love old Volkswagens or ever had a hare-brained idea, been stranded beside the road, or blessed by the kindness of strangers, then Circle the Wagen has something for you.
