Chronic Town2008

  • 3.8
Truman Korovin is a lonely, sharp-witted cab driver in Fairbanks, Alaska, 1980. The usual routine of picking up fares and spending his nights at his favorite bar, the Boatel, is disrupted when his girlfriend, Emily, dumps him on one of the coldest nights of the year. After an acid trip, Truman winds up in the local "loony bin". Imprisoned in a grueling therapy group, Truman gets re-acquainted with loonies who are his old cab fares, which includes a local stripper he has insulted more than once. In this world, Truman must find or lose himself.

This moves a tad slow in its development, but packs a powerful ending. Worth the wait, trust me. Good flick.

That was a really enjoyable movie for some reason. It strikes me that I find it interesting because the movie itself is really sad but there is a warmth in all of the main characters' struggles and you wish them the best even though its not all peaches.

Awesome acting. Very depressing subject matter though.

Ordinary people living really sad, f*cked up lives. No hope, no future, hanging on from day to day, all passive and hopeless. I didn't see the comedy aspect, unless peoples dejected, meaningless lives are somehow funny. Sigh.
