Synopsis

An aging comedian tours the California desert, lost in a cycle of third-rate venues, tourist attractions, and attempts to reach his estranged daughter. Fueled by the promise of a lucrative Hollywood engagement, he trudges through a series of increasingly surreal and volatile encounters.

MUBI's take

Referencing his iconic Neil Hamburger character, Gregg Turkington is a beautiful trainwreck of a comedian in Rick Alverson’s dark parable on the entertainment industry. Featuring a stellar cast including John C. Reilly, this Lynchian road trip to nowhere extracts humor out of misery—and vice versa.
