The Egyptian Theater is a beautiful theatre. We were fortunate to find great seats. We left after 35 minutes. It was so boring and tedious to watch. The movie was about filming the movie. It was true to the title. "A Road to Nowhere". Who know's...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“May also be as significant to the indie feature as Avatar is to the popcorn movie.”  —The New York Times
“Monte Hellman’s first feature film in 21 years is one of his finest and deepest, a twin peak to his 1971 masterpiece, Two-Lane Blacktop.”  —Variety

Description

Los Angeles Premiere! Road to Nowhere, 2010, Monterey Media, 121 min, Mystery/Thriller/Drama, USA. Dir. Monte Hellman

In this expectation-confounding, enigmatic film-within-a-film, a director (cleverly named Mitchell Haven, and played by an excellent Tygh Runyan) struggles with a series of unsettling catastrophes that beset his small film based on a “true story” murder mystery and the following disappearance of a young woman. Haven’s lead actress (played with alternating relish and calm assurance by Shannyn Sossamon) bears an uncanny resemblance to the actual missing femme fatale, and the crew begins to uncomfortably wonder if the actress and murderer are one and the same. Meanwhile, Haven’s obsession with his beautiful lead grows deeper and more profound. Shot with economic practicality on the Canon 5D and using traditional still-photo lenses, Monte Hellman’s mind-bending mood piece is as aesthetically hypnotic as it is emotionally beguiling. Official selection of the Venice Film Festival, Palm Springs International Film Festival and SXSW. “A certifiable masterpiece.” – Film Comment.
