Quotes

Mitchell: A 30 year old loser, living in his car, is about the last person that I'm going to be looking to for advice on how to fix my life. So unless you want to put out a book of "don't"s based on all of the ways you've screwed up, which is the only thing you're ever likely to publish, you should probably just shut the fuck up.

A "Scenic Route" to hell...
16 March 2013 | by (U.S.) – See all my reviews

The road-trip gone-wrong/ buddy movie starts with a slow burn -- biting, often hilarious dialog introduces us to two old friends who's benign friction escalates as their predicament gets worse.

The performances are engaging and absorbing--masterfully done as most of the movie rests on these two characters versus the elements (as well as the two actors versus difficult shooting conditions, according to the Q&A after the premiere I saw at SXSW).

For an indie thriller "Scenic Route" doesn't show any low budget limitations -- the cinematography in Death Valley is breathtaking and unforgiving, yet still haunting and beautiful.

Once the film grabs you, it doesn't let go. The movie, the imagery, stays with you long after you leave the theater.
