One of the coolest films i've seen in a long time
23 January 2002 | by alanjgoodenoughSee all my reviews

This film is one of the most insane things I have ever seen on video. I thought it was totally trippy.. confusing, but not in that way which makes you think "i can't be bothered to watch this."

I thought it was brilliantly filmed and had fantastic performances by the entire cast. Nick Nolte was especially funny. My favorite character by far though was the writer, Kilgore Trout. Cynical and quite quite mad. fantastic!!

I highly recommend this film if you want to watch something different.
