Fun ride of self discovery and finding your place in the world.
2 March 2016 | by deckyonSee all my reviews

I am no film expert. Watching lots of movies and shows does not make one an expert. The only way to do that is to study and make films. All that being said, this was a great movie. I found the trailer on Vimeo while searching for some motorcycle trip shorts and it had punch. I bought the film at that point. No shaky-cam or weird filters to take away from the story. The photography was brilliant, especially when it came to the "on the road" shots. They captured the expanse and beautiful desolation of the rural west. The writing and narrative was fun to listen to and made sense to the overall movie, not just that moment in the film. It was nice to see a film both have a message that is revealed finally, but to do so without blazing special effects or filters. The actors were genuine, and while some of them were rough or not well played, they did not detract from the main cast.

I enjoyed this movie, it was entertaining and really allowed me to put myself into the film. That is what I want from a movie - a 2 hour reprieve from normalcy. This is a movie I have recommended, and will continue to recommend.

Having participated in some film festivals (48 Hour Film Project 2010-2015) I have seen the back end and participated in making some films. Nothing to this quality.

Besides, it has motorcycles, bars, whiskey, women and the beautiful American west.
