In this largely avant-garde feature film, Rex is the member of a group of underground revolutionaries with an unknown agenda who receive their orders from picking letters out of a bowl of alphabet soup. Rex and his companion Nixie travel across the country and change their names with each stage of the story (the stages are separated by a countdown of numbers from 10 to 0). They begin in New York City and strive to make it to Los Angeles. Their adventures, misadventures and often bizarre happenstances form the bulk of the narrative. Written by thustlebird

Crazy Credits

The title appears on the screen in a long division problem. A "0" is the divisor and a "1" is the dividend. The quotient is the title "OUT". After the title appears onscreen, a character throws a stick of dynamite and people are seen running from left to right against a brick wall on which is written a number countdown from 10 to 0.

It really doesn't make sense!
19 July 2005 | by CkrisisSee all my reviews

Some people would call this one of those deep movies that you have to sit and actually watch to understand the plot.I'm the type of guy that always understands the plot but this one was a mind twister.It made no sense at all.The movie was about a group of people in 10 different stories holding dynamite,saying "your it" and rambling on about some "old man".O yes they also spelled out special words by eating alphabet soup and then eating them to understand the words and they could also read each others minds.If you didn't understand a thing I just said thats because the movie doesn't make sense and exactly what I said is in this movie.It is kind of funny though because of the confusion of the movie and hilarious acting.If your bored, watch it.
