What a fun film. Worth checking out for the musical performances of some of the greatest artists of today, but you get a whole lot more than that.
Rory Cochrane is great as the lead, plays it real cool as Chance, a down and out musician. When he acquires the '69 Moletron, a super rare synthesizer, it lands him the gig and the girl (Beth Orton). But the Moletron gets stolen, and Chance is determined to get it back.
Chance and his seedy pal Ross Angeles chase the synth around LA through the buy/sell rag, The Southlander, and encounter all sorts of LA weirdos, including the unstable defunct funk star Motherchild (Lawrence Hilton Jacobs), Beck, who leads them to a bizarre technology bonfire pit, the menacing junkyard man (Hank Williams III) and a whole slew of others. The recently deceased and dearly departed Elliott Smith has a brief cameo, and contributed 2 previously unreleased songs for the film.
Director Steve Hanft's specialty is in music video (he directed Beck's Loser video), and the production reflects his talent. The musical performances are brilliant and touching.
The extras are fabulous as well. The more I watch it the more I love it!

What a great original movie! Also, hilarious!!And the music is awesome! This movie has so many different moments.Have watched this movie hundreds of times because it reminds me of me and my friends. It is just like reality in my life. It keeps a great pace. Rory Cochrane plays a cool slacker dude looking for his '69 moletron. He and others get hosed by the wierded out LA crowd, looking for the moletron. It is the money, dudes! So many different music artists. I highly recommend to all that like good alternate music and original independent films. Way to go Steve and Ross who both wrote and directed the film. Ross' music can also be heard throughout the movie.
Peace

This is a great movie: Loved the music (with Beck Hansen and Beth Orton) and others you can't go wrong. The script is well written, the cinematography is divine and the result is a hilarious trip you'll be glad you didn't miss through LA's music scene.
