A passable, if often dreary, evocation of those '70s road movies in which disillusioned young men (and the occasional woman) took to the highway in search of America, the meaning of things or maybe just a hamburger.

A road movie, but made by someone who seems so self-absorbed he might as well be asleep at the wheel.

What plays for 80 minutes like an intolerable, self-indulgent road trip largely redeems itself in the last 10 minutes, through a moving explanation of the anti-hero's catatonic depression.

Must be one of the truest songs of roadside America that the movies have produced.

Narcissisistic, self-indulgent, solipsistic claptrap is still narcissistic, self-indulgent, solipsistic claptrap, no matter how long or short.

I couldn't appreciate Gallo the director's Cassavetes-like taste for the realism... But Gallo films locations with a stranger's lucidity and an impressive commitment to natural sound and undoctored images.

Singular focus on failure, and a male rage so constrained, so constipated, you can't help but admire its concentration... Its powerful study of pathology is hardly cathartic. There's cumulative languor... sure to aggravate whatever following it finds.

You certainly don't want to spend 90 minutes watching Vincent Gallo drive, shower, brood, and weep, which is almost all this movie is.

When every other scene looks like a cola, jeans or motorcycle commercial -- perfectly unposed with hair proudly mussed -- Gallo's motivations seem too compromised.
