In a way, this shaggy-dog hipster road film is Frank's ultimate work -- evoking the end of the road and even the end of Endsville-but he has persevered.

This road movie in the spirit of the Beats follows Julius (O'Connor), a struggling musician and James Dean wannabe, who sets out on a mission to track down legendary guitar maker Elmore Silk.

Watching Candy Mountain, we're lulled into a mood of uncertain but pleasurable anticipation.

You get sweeter on Candy with every passing mile.

Ambling along like a wry, laid-back "Heart of Darkness," this likable and touching film makes good use of Frank's remarkable photographic eye and Wurlitzer's witty, acerbic, and quasi-mystical handling of myth that has served him well in his novels.
