What a treat it was when I first stumbled onto this film. This is my generation and my college days. One of the things I like about the film is its insightfulness into the working of day to day conversations. The nodding heads of listeners who are oblivious to what you are saying. And maybe they should be oblivious. The ending trails off into apparent nothingness and maybe it should. It was the only part I didn't care for. This is not a movie for dull people. It possesses a strong similarity to 'Waking Life'.

I swear ... at one time or another during the early 90's I was each and every character in this movie or maybe I just knew them... this movie is like an acurate slice of time... some of the best.. most interesting characters ever put on film.... I give it five ramen-noodles and two thumbs up!
