Ah, experimental film. It’s an art that’s not for everyone. When you sit down to see movie, you really tend to expect a story of some kind, and when you don’t get that, it can confuse you. That’s kind of what I got from Welcome to Nowhere (Bullet Hole Road), there’s a lot of stuff going on, and only some of it made sense to me.
Welcome to Nowhere is the story of a group of people in a motel in the middle of the desert; each has his own demons and is grappling with them as best they can. The movie looks amazing, the effects are great and the color and textures are amazing. There’s even a song in the middle of the movie, an interlude, that’s very interesting, but overall, this movie just left me wondering what was going on.
Everyone is standing around looking very serious, there’s a couple of stories that are told that are good, but don’t really add much context to the film and, in the end, I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to take away from this.
I’m giving Welcome to Nowhere (Bullet Hole Road) 2 out of 4 cigars, it looks great, but I’m not sure what the message was supposed to be here! Find out more for yourself by heading over to http://www.welcometonowherefilm.com.
