Storyline

Circle The Wagen is a feature-length buddy/road-trip/docu-dramedy that follows Dave, an idealistic adventurer and automotive ne'er-do-well, and his convivial co-pilot Charlie on their journey down Route 66 in a baby blue 1972 VW bus. Through mishaps and murals, gasoline baths and breakdowns the two discover a teeming underground of vintage VW diehards willing to help save "The Croc" from the scrap heap and rally her beleaguered owner on to California. Written by Ryan Steven Green and Charlie Pecoraro

Too good to be a documentary!
21 June 2013 | by onetofixitSee all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed attending the World Premier of Circle the Wagen at the Route 66 Film Festival. Our classic Camper Bus was part of the impressive line of classic VWs on Central (historic Route 66) in front of the Guild Cinema theater.

Documentaries usually don't entertain me but this film is a refreshing departure from what I expect out of a documentary. Ryan Green did an excellent job taking the viewer along the ups and downs Dave and Charlie lived with the Croc. Being a long time classic VW enthusiast (and therefore also a homegrown mechanic) I wanted to jump into the film to help fix the Croc! Fellow enthusiasts did jump in and fill the need.

My word for this film is "inspirational". I left the theater wanting to revisit and complete every undone project I've ever started. To think they almost didn't complete this film! I'm so glad they did!

How did they get to LA? You'll have to watch it to find out. I will say it wasn't easy but if it were, where would the adventure be?
