    Anyone confused by the (real) Terrence Malick writing credit slapped on this one should rest easy - it's a very good film, a murky stoned melancholy road trip that plays like the weirder flip side of TWO LANE BLACKTOP. And Alan Arkin is incredible in this, the kind of performance that makes you realize that, yeah, this is indeed the guy who directed LITTLE MURDERS...
