Freaky Post-apocalyptic and Nerdy Fun
4 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

I loved this movie!!!! the movie starts in 1999 where european director Lars Von Biers finds Steve Glenn, a dorky video dubber, who made an unfinished attempt at a post apocalyptic movie that was never finished. Glenn shows the movie to Von Biers and the director ends up finishing the movie. The movie shows America after a nuclear holocaust where the FCC rules the airwaves. The only legal broadcasts are Emergency Broadcast System. Radio Free Steve, a younger version of Glenn, is the bird flipping hero. He is a sophomoric adolesent in the body of a young man. He rides aroung in his van with his girlfreind Sheena trying to avoid The evil FCC bounty hunter DIRK. Throught his travels Steve encounters a hippie commune, a gay radio pirate from Marfa Texas, a buddhist freind extoling the virtues of the dance, and a whole plethora of flesh eating mutants. The movie may seem extremely low budget but the idea is that this is a home movie made in 1985. The soundtrack rox and the nods to other great cinematic moments abound. Everything from Empire Strikes Back to Smokey and The Bandit to Tron to Mad Max. This is a very smart look at popculture with a definate texas flair. It has been called the funniest thing to come out of the Texas independent film scene since Slacker. It is still in it festival run so look for it and you will be pleased with the results.
