"Border Radio," though nearly 25-years old, is surprisingly fresh, still. The music, by notable LA punkers of the time, is done with talent and energy and lends to the hip quotient of the film.

It's a patchy effort that begins in confusion before settling into a rambling anti-road trip which seems like a West Coast response to Jim Jarmusch's far better "Stranger Than Paradise."

It's Andy Warhol west, humorously and amiably capturing the aimless lifestyle of punk rockers, dopers, hangers-on and idlers.
