'The Long Dumb Road' Cast Talk Reinventing the Classic American Road Trip

'The Long Dumb Road' Cast Talk Reinventing the Classic American Road Trip
The cast of The Long Dumb Road discussed the challenges of revitalizing a well known genre and retelling the classic American road trip narrative.

Director Hannah Fidell specifically pointed out her desire to film the American landscape, coast to coast, and highlight the Southwest — providing a picturesque backdrop to a nightmare trip.

“It just feels iconic. When you think of a road trip, you think of seeing the cacti, the desert, so it was sort of a no-brainer to set the movie in that landscape,” Fidell told The Hollywood Reporter.

Unlike the scenic production schedule,...

‘El Angel’ Blessed With Ok Bow; ‘Chef Flynn’ Solid, ‘Boy Erased’ Expands: Specialty Box Office

‘El Angel’ Blessed With Ok Bow; ‘Chef Flynn’ Solid, ‘Boy Erased’ Expands: Specialty Box Office
Star-driven specialties mostly took a pause this weekend, though the big ticket awards-release Friday, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs from Netflix, had a courtesy theatrical release in a few Landmark theater locations, giving the Coen brothers release the watermarks of an awards release.

The focus is still on its core streaming service, so box office numbers are not released by Netflix. But a quick check at the theater website shows the musical-Western, starring Liam Neeson, James Franco, and Zoe Kazan, played in smaller houses. So the theatrical experience for this title will be for a very select NY and L.A. coastal crowd, and likely not a big box office number. But that’s how it was designed. Some of the other big fall releases will follow suit, with symbolic theatricals via Netflix, including Alfonso Cuarón’s amazing Roma and Susanne Bier’s anticipated Bird Box.

On the actual specialty theatrical release side this weekend,

Netflix’s ‘Ballad Of Buster Scruggs’ Hits Big Screen; ‘In A Relationship’, ‘Chef Flynn’ & ‘El Angel’ Bow – Specialty B.O. Preview
The stream of fall rollouts continues, although at a bit slower pace on the specialty box office front compared with recent weekends. Among them however is the Coen brothers’ anticipated The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, with Netflix beginning a very limited theatrical run today in New York at The Landmark 57 West, at The Landmark Los Angeles and the Embarcadero Center Cinema in San Francisco.

Buster Scruggs is one of three Netflix films — along with Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma and Susanne Bier’s Bird Box — to get a rare pre-streaming theatrical release as the company looks to to boost awareness for its awards-season fare. This film is also screening this weekend at AFI Fest and will be available via the service next week.

As per Netflix, the company doesn’t plan to release box office figures for its films.

Watch: Jason Mantzoukas on The Rolling Stones vs. The Beatles in Exclusive Clip from ‘The Long Dumb Road’

The manic, anarchic charm of Jason Mantzoukas is on full display in The Long Dumb Road, Hannah Fidell’s latest feature, which follows his character alongside Tony Revolori’s Nat on a road trip to Los Angeles. While the comedian is usually utilized for quick bursts of energy in various comedies, Fidell gives him a genuine arc and proves his leading man potential.

After premiering at Sundance, the comedy will arrive in theaters this week and we’re pleased to present an exclusive clip in which Mantzoukas’ drifter character Richard has many thoughts on The Rolling Stones. In Dan Mecca’s review, he said Mantzoukas steals the show and “his ability to find the humor in almost every moment is a true gift,” as displayed in this clip.

Also starring Taissa Farmiga, Grace Gummer, Casey Wilson, and Ron Livingston, check out our exclusive clip and the trailer below.

‘The Long Dumb Road’ Film Review: Buddy Comedy Travels Familiar Path, But the Company’s Great
It’s not always a compliment to note that a movie feels like the right fit for Sundance. Festival faves often deflate when they reach the real world, unable to survive without the eager enthusiasm of film fans. The Sundance premiere “The Long Dumb Road” is undeniably cut from familiar cloth. But it’s got enough charm to keep it buoyant long after Robert Redford waves the last blogger goodbye.

As with all road movies, its success rides on the company we’re required to keep. Happily, our two leads are unflaggingly delightful companions.

The trip begins when naïve teen Nat leaves home for his first year of college. He’s driving from Austin to Los Angeles when his car breaks down, putting him in a panic. Rather miraculously, though, he bumps into a friendly stranger just in time: Richard (Jason Mantzoukas) has just quit his job as a car

The Long Dumb Road Clip Shows Tony Revolori & Jason Mantzoukas’ Life Philosophy

David Crow Nov 1, 2018

In exclusive comedy clip, watch Tony Revolori and Jason Mntzoukas discuss the finer things in life on The Long Dumb Road.

Life can be hard, but a road trip with funnymen can often do the trick of lightening the load—for audiences and characters alike. So it goes with The Long Dumb Road, a comedy on the road of the American Southwest that looks at the small but still stark generational divide between its two central characters: Nat (played by Tony Revolori) and Richard (Jason Mantzoukas). In the film, Nat is an aspiring photographer who is bound for college and a shiny new future; Richard is a 30-something millennial who just wants a buddy for the drive, and maybe the chance to get drunk all across the open road of Americana that lies between blue dot Austin, Texas and the dream factory that is Los Angeles.
