. A teenage girl with nothing to lose joins a traveling magazine sales crew, and gets caught up in a whirlwind of hard partying, law bending and young love as she criss-crosses the Midwest with a band of misfits.
I read a lot of great things about this movie and decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, I did not agree with any of the great things said about this movie. There is no plot or story. It is 3 hours of random scenes of teens selling door to door magazines. There is no explanation to anything going on other than they need to make money. At one point the main character steps in some sort of pool of blood on the side of the road. No idea why or what that was about. The only thing that could maybe even be considered a "plot" is the weird jealously driven obsession between the two main characters. If you like indie films that piece together random stuff with no story line and "just end", then this movie is for you. Otherwise, keep searching.
Horribly bad... No point, no purpose, no plot, just one dull, boring, pointless scene after another. Add in the shaky camera nonsense that most people complain about, yet still seems to rear its ugly head now and then, ended up being a total waste of time.
A raw look into an aspect of American culture, it's authentic & sincere, I found it captivating; inspiring.
shia's braid made me want to gag. No plot. Keep waiting for something to happen but nothing ever does. Depressing, nauseating, too long.
Loved it!! Fantastic movie!
I keep reading "this movie isn't for everyone" or "worst movie of the year". Please refrain from bad reviews of this film, if your a 40+ uptight movie goer that flocks at the obvious-norm (blockbuster, Meg Ryan, let's be safe movies) and you eat bland-spaghetti then you will not enjoy this journey or maybe you will. This is not your normal bad kids get in trouble blockbuster where 100 boardroom members all had their hands in the pot throwing around their BS ideas to raise the profit margin. This is a independent, life uniting art, imitating life story of young men and women trying to find their way. A coming of age story that screams "free", you'll watch this movie and you'll want to be these kids, living in this in moment, without rules, without boundaries, living life away from laptops and iPhones. Give it a shot, and again if you're uptight then go watch La La Land.
Don't expect a convenient plot, or a pointless series of hollywood cliches. This one just lays out a group of "marginal"americans like they really are. Wandering, yes. Pointless, sure. Quite real and moving, you bet. Just settle in and watch -- sure its pushing three hours, but it is head and shoulders above the pfaff you've been watching for 90 minutes at a stretch. A great piece of cinema. Bravo.
The movie never went past the fascinating awkwardness and self-conciousness of the kids, mostly non actors. When it came time to go deeper, the movie could not, because it was relying on the kids. Good job by Will Patton. Good music. But ultimately just made me want to see Korine and Clark's Kids again.
Too long; too meandering; too lost; and way to hard to stay engaged!!! Big yawn!!!! 😵
