This is how the world ends, it seems. Not with a whimper, but with a converted bus, a shotgun, and a solar panel out front.

...the real deal, an unforgettable piece of Americana.

Not a groundbreaking documentary, but good food for thought about freedom and independence

Well, I like documentaries,and I like off-beat documentaries even better, so this one looked promising. I never realized that so many people lived out there on the mesa, in Arizona, but I must admit that although I'm a bohemian at heart, the thought of no shower or bath for 4 weeks at a time was a little daunting... There are some cool cats out there, though. And a lot of mentally ill people, too. I guess you get to be very real with everyone if you're living in that place, but, well, I'm not quite ready to move out there. A lot of coarse language (which I expected) and some nudity in this documentary. And some interesting (and sad) stories. Ultimately, that's what I liked about it. The stories were there. The people were real. And that's right up my alley!
