Director: Rick Alverson • US
En route to Los Angeles, a washed-up comedian tours the shabbiest venues throughout the Mojave desert, where surreal encounters and lacerating self-examination go hand-in-hand. Can he entertain anyone? Does he even want to? Gregg Turkington (a.k.a. Neil Hamburger) delivers a memorably disturbing performance in this absurdist road-movie oddity co-written by Tim Heidecker (Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim) and throbbing with angry humor.
