Boron to Buttonwillow: Muscle, Media, and American Identity on Highway 58

Boron to Buttonwillow: Muscle, Media, and American Identity on Highway 58

This film-archaeology-road-movie excavates memory and the media produced along a single, remote 129-mile highway in rural California; where aging workers from small towns provide striking contrasts and odd parallels with Hollywood's tortured films shot on the same hardscrabble landscape.

It's by far my favourite film, a rousing, titanic epic that's so ambitious it seems to transcend the boundaries of cinema and go to places I've never seen the medium venture before.
