Storyline

In a city of desperate musicians, it takes a little bit more than talent to beat the odds. The MoleTron keyboard was Chance's ticket out of town. With it, the gig and the girl were his. But in the Southlander game, you might get a little bit more than you bargained for. Earth people are 'onto' the sound of the MoleTron synthesizer, which Chance, the 'Chosen One' chases after.

Excellent indie flick
17 February 2005 | by wank_youSee all my reviews

This film is the very definition of what independent film should be. It has a carefree attitude that you cannot help but be carried along with. The acting is far above what you see in the majority of DV features. Everyone involved takes it seriously as a film and not some shot on a weekend flick. Rory Cochrane is excellent in his role of Chance the Keyboard player and makes a fine tour guide through a strong ensemble cast of actors and musicians. Beck and Lawerence Hilton-Jacobs particularly stand out as Bek and Motherchild respectively. It remind me of John Landis' "Into the Night" from the early eighties as a surreal journey through a subculture of L.A. More then worth tracking down
