A wild ride through Southern disillusionment

First time ever I watched this movie. What a shame. And did you? 
Black and white film, year domini 1994, by Suki Hawley and Michael Galinsky, a poignant road movie, portrait of Tara (Tara Jane O'Neil) in her early 20s with a group of high school friends, stealing her brother's van - Otis, played by Ian Svenonius - a van full of music equipment, then they hit the road and to afford food, they pretend to be an 'art rock' band, called "Truckstop" (played by the band Rodan), playing instruments disastrously. An hilarious as well as bitter/sweet narrative, a mix of anguish and youth angst, indie/alternative rock subculture. That lovely. In 1995 Matador rec released a double vinyl discs album: the tracklist is simply insane: RodanSlant 6, Helium, Polvo, Unwound, - just to cite a few.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
