Want to wonder how stupid people could possibly be?
A. Lewis
One of the best movies of 2010, a film in the Film Noir tradition, with the intrigue of Hitchcock's Vertigo and the ambiguities of Lynch's Mulholland Drive.

For those of you whose lives are about that sort of thing, have at it.

Road to Nowhere (Monte Hellman, 2010)

Like everyone else, I knew the name Monte Hellman thanks to his cult favorite Two-Lane Blacktop (which stars a young James Taylor, of all people); I had no idea he was still making movies until a few years ago, at which point I set out to try and track a few down. Netflix Instant Streaming was my friend, first pointing me to the anthology flick Trapped Ashes, of which Hellman's entry is the best by a country mile, and then to this wonderful little talk-piece-[censored for Amazon consumption]-slow-thriller, the kind of avant-garde nightmare that tends to make fans of more accessible thrillers cringe (thus, I would assume, its low ratings at the usual suspects; 5.5 at IMDB, 38% public on Rotten Tomatoes—but, as I am fond of noting when I see it, the gulf between the public and the critical receptions to this movie is massive. The critical rating at RT: 79%). I'll add to the gap: I think it's [censored for Amazon consumption] brilliant, though I have to agree with Roger Ebert's pithy quote that the film “plays like an exercise in frustrating audiences.” This is a thriller for Apichatpong Weerasethakul fans, at least if I am any yardstick to judge by.

Steven [do I REALLY have to not include the name of the scriptwriter, geniuses? You need a better "obscenity" filter] (All Men Are Mortal)' script is an ensemble piece masquerading as a straightforward thriller. The surface plot: a hot young filmmaker, Mitchell Haven (Snakes on a Plane's Tygh Runyan), heads into the backwoods of the deep south to make a movie based on a local unsolved mystery.

Probably the best in Venice 2010 and one of the most important american movie of the decade!
This blu ray edition offers a really good experience (it was shot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II).
Can you see the truth behind the digital grain?

Monte Hellman is not for the sit com watcher but for the true lover of movies. I highly recommend "Road to Nowhere" if you like going somewhere off the beaten path. Five Thumbs Up for this one!
