Editorial Reviews

As child actors, Mel and Fred were beaten and whipped by an imperious screenwriter, Fritz Frobisher. Now the elderly Fritz is to appear at a tee-shirt signing ceremony in Monument Valley, AZ, where his great films were made.

Format: DVD
This is a minimalist comedy, in the flavor of "Stranger Than Paradise". A road comedy, starring Del Zamora and Ed Pansullo. Del Zamora as Melvino Torres, anchors this movie. He is the glue, that holds the movie together. Ed Pansullo, as Fred Fletcher, is able to play off Del Zamora, to much comedic effect. Jaclyn Jonet, makes her film debut, as the daughter of Melvino Torres. Writer/Director Alex Cox, makes a cameo appearance; as does film critic, Leonard Maltin; and the legendary Roger Corman (who is also the executive producer of "Searchers 2.0"), as an evil studio head. Director of Photography, Steven Fierberg's photography, is a tribute to Monument Valley. There is one scene, that has snow on the ground, that is one of the most amazing shots of Monument Valley ever seen, and that is saying a lot. Alex Cox has done it again, making an interesting movie, that slyly dissects capitalism, the US addiction to oil, and American movie heroism. The fact that American movies, celebrate revenge, is in particular, one of the most revealing aspects of his clever screenplay. All in all, this movie works, on many levels. Very much like an Alex Cox film. There are layers upon layers, of hidden and coded meaning. What a fun film maker. I highly recommend this quirky comedy. It is worth your time.

I would tend to agree with the previous two reviewers regarding some aspects of this film. The cinematography is beautiful. That may be a backhanded compliment, cause how can you go wrong in Monument Valley? The screenplay flows naturally. The basic storyline is well arranged in that you remain interested in the films progression. And the director gets some strong opinions across to the audience. in those respects this is a good indie find.

What murders this movie is the lame acting. the two main characters are too aware of the camera. their angle and positioning is artificial. the dialog is too spaced. their rhythm and intonation is stifling. their interaction is too syntheic. in that regard the viewer is not allowed to be absorbed into the movie, but always looking in from a distance. sure, maybe a few feet away, but never in it.

So, all n all it floundered.

I can't believe I hadn't heard of this movie until a few weeks ago. Having just seen "Repo Man" again for the first time in 20 years, I was blown away how that movie still stands up. And also by how much other subsequent filmmakers in the last 20 years had "taken" (stolen, really) from it. And then I learned about "Searchers 2.0," a movie made a few years ago but that got little promotion.

Well, "Searchers 2.0" just came out on DVD and it's amazing. It's a road movie, it's a western, it's a comedy and it's a scathingly truthful movie about Hollywood. Funny, moving, and incredibly unique, it's everything you'd hope for in an Alex Cox movie. And the acting is delightful. This is probably one of the best movies ever made about Hollywood, from someone who knows all its ups and downs. And it's one of those movies that just stays with you. Some scenes are hilarious. And some are incredibly touching. And there are some scenes that are so breathtakingly filmed (on a budget, no less!) that you will want to watch them over again.

This is a writer/director (and his team) working at their very best. It's just a great film!
