Storyline

In the spirit of Waiting for Guffman and Spinal Tap , DAS BUS combines real and staged events alongside archival footage as viewers experience "BUS CULTURE" in the "Bible Belt" metropolis of Kansas City. With Guest appearances by crime novelist James Ellroy and rap star Tech N9NE, DAS BUS is a thought provoking romp that will confront everyone's attitude about public transportation. You will laugh, you will cry, you will empathize, you will say "no way"--an independent film in the true sense of the word. Written by R. Douglas Chapman

Great "Mockumentry"
4 October 2003 | by CHRISSCHERMBECKSee all my reviews

This film was amazing! Ben Meade has turned something as boring and mundane as public transportation into something hilarious and thought provoking. The scene with local rapper Tech N9ne was jaw-dropping and side-splitting! The mixture of music and visual effects made the film go beyond the normal expectations. Words can not begin to describe the absurdity of this film. Although a local mid-west "film", if ever released on DVD, should be found, watched, and coveted as one of the best in any collection.
