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.

I attended the world premiere of "Circle the Wagen" at the Albuquerque Film & Media Experience on June 9th. Wow! What an experience! In part because there were a lot of VW die hards in the crowd (many of whom where in the movie), which made the premiere extra special. Many of these folks knew first hand of the trials and tribulations that have been part of the 6 year journey of the making of this first class documentary. In my case, I had read about this film in the Orange County (CA) Register a few weeks prior and just joined the party. I knew I'd like the movie because it was about a VW and the VW community, two very likable clueless dudes (Dave and Charlie) and working hard behind the scenes was a very talented, up-and-coming director (Ryan Steven Green.) I didn't realize I'd LOVE the movie, though. In part because it had me laughing throughout, was a feel good story and, like every great movie, I kept looking at my watch as I didn't want it to end. I'm not a prude, but on a side note, it was kind of cool that you could take young kids to this, too! On the worst days with the '72 Bus (The Croc) you never even hear a single "F" bomb out of the guys. Awesome job, Circle the Wagen Team! Hope we can see it on the big screen again soon!
