Editorial Reviews

''If David Lynch and David Cronenberg teamed up with Werner Herzog early in their careers and made a movie together'' says TwitchFilm, ''it would have been Calvin Lee Reeder's THE RAMBLER.'' Dermot Mulroney of THE GREY and ZODIAC stars as an ex-con just released from prison, kicked out of his trailer home, and gone on a cross-country journey to his long-lost brother's pony ranch. But along the way, he'll encounter a depraved American underbelly of dusty towns, bizarre strangers, sudden violence, and a device that can record dreams onto VHS. Lindsay Pulsipher (''Justified'', ''True Blood'') and Natasha Lyonne (AMERICAN PIE) co-star in this surreal Sundance sensation about shadowy pasts, questionable futures, and the deadpan traveling man known only as THE RAMBLER.

2.0 out of 5 stars THE RAMBLER Rambles Incessantly June 23, 2013
Dermot Mulroney is one of those faces we've seen in scores of film and TV products. It's likeable enough. It's honest enough. It's even wholesome enough. It's a face we can easily see attached to almost any kind of project - big studio stuff and/or indie flicks - and he has the kind of presence audiences can easily embrace. We want to root for the guy. We want him to succeed at whatever he's doing. We want to see him make it big.

And, yes, I'd have to say that's probably the biggest and best reason to sit through THE RAMBLER, clearly an attempt at some experimental narrative written and directed by Calvin Reeder. While some might try to convince you that THE RAMBLER is the bee's knees (Google it, kids!), I'd have to go the other way and say that aside from some small, independent moments wrapped up in the greater film there really isn't all that much to get excited about here. That's a disappointment, but sometimes a film is a film is a film ... I'm not sure what this is. Or was.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then this ain't it! I'd encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come,' then read on ...)

The Rambler (played by Dermot Mulroney) was just released from prison, and, once he realizes he's living no life at all back home with his unfaithful `gal pal' and his trailer-park-trash `buddies.

1.0 out of 5 stars Strangest Nonsense I've Ever Seen August 9, 2013
By Matt
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is the most ridiculous waste of time. I am glad I only rented this movie. The only reason I rented it to begin with, is I know some of the people in it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money! July 27, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
One of the strangest, most confusing movies I have ever seen. I am a huge Dermot Mulroney fan but for the life of me I can't figure out why he did this thing? It's beyond bad. If you want to see it, wait for the free version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Real Movie News review June 19, 2013
By Ryan
This sophomore feature from filmmaker Calvin Reeder solidifies his stature as a blatant David Lynch copycat. From the jarring editing and a nonsensical narrative to the surreal characters and dream-like situations, The Rambler doesn't just seem to borrow from films like Mulholland Dr. and Lost Highway as much as poorly imitate. Like The Oregonian, Reeder's first feature, The Rambler is purposefully confounding in both narrative and the unconventional yet intentionally jarring manner in which the story is presented. Even the worst of Lynch was more interesting and more coherent than this muddled misstep, but fans of experimental horror may enjoy the unsettling images and editing compiled in The Rambler. Others may find that this 99 minute film feels much, much longer.

The basic plot of The Rambler seems impossibly simple, and perhaps this is because the feature film is actually based on a 12 minute short that Reeder completed in 2008. Dermot Mulroney stars as the nameless rambler, on his way cross country to work with his brother on a horse ranch after being released from prison early for good behavior. He makes a brief appearance back home, but after discovering the unfaithfulness of his wife and the bleakness of this existence, he makes plans to join his brother for a peaceful existence in Oregon.

This peace is not easily found, as the rambler quickly discovers how quickly random violence occurs on the road. As he hitches rides across the country with his guitar in tow, rarely seeming to lose his hat and never parting with his sunglasses, this expressionless traveler comes across a cornucopia of quirky characters that range from harmless to homicidal. Oddly combining both of these attributes is the film's more compelling character, a mad professor played by James Cady.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time. April 20, 2014

Worst movie I have ever seen. I wish I could get my money back. I thought the brown bunny was bad, but this is much worse.

2.0 out of 5 stars Repulsive and pointless waste of fake blood August 7, 2014
I found no point to this film, in which Dermot Mulroney participates aimlessly and impassively in scenes of real or perhaps hallucinatory gore involving physical torture, mayhem, and human distress and abuse, many replayed as flashbacks to heighten their repulsive effect.
