Do you wanna buy a ticket to the raffle of a dog/ That comes a-runnin', lickin', when you whistle, holler "Claude"?/ A big brown dog, just as sound as a ring/ He'll be eight years old if he lives 'til the spring./ Tickets, tickets, two for a quarter!/ If you haven't got your ticket yet, well, you'd better order!/ He'll wet your carpet and he'll fertilize your grass/ He's got three white feet and a hole in his ass!

I've watched the film twice and love it. The different personalities, the different people and their interests just fascinates me. The film is beautifully shot and paced. The acting is excellent by everyone, the dialog interesting.
There are certain scenes that made us laugh out loud. When hitchhikers join the traveling couple we hear some loony dialog that is perfectly delivered and done in such a humorous way. You almost wish you could have been there to hear more.
Some people seem to question the quick cuts, the unexplained meetings. The timeline does get distorted but it in no way damages the quality of the film.
I think most people will want this to stay in their collection. And if you enjoyed this check out Jack in "The Passenger".
