  2. mubianer's rating of the film Route One/USA

    4.5. The good things: Unique in many ways, a cinematic road not taken, great in-between moments of reflections just filming highways, back alleys, modern people and machines (loved the rusty boats among the palms in Miami), a historical document of 80's USA, great editing. The negatives: Would have worked better as episodes, maybe it could have been more focus on the fiction part (or skip it all together)
