Synopsis

A filmmaker, creating a film based upon a true crime, casts a mysterious woman bearing a disturbing resemblance to the femme fatale in the story. He finds himself drawn into a complex web of haunting intrigue, obsessed with the woman, the crime, and the complexity between art and truth.

Our take

An under-known figure of American independent film, Monte Hellman reignited his career as a director after a 21 year absence with Road to Nowhere. Its self-reflective film-within-a-film structure, carried by Tom Russell’s folk music, explores a film production through the filmmaker’s point of view.
