Interstate 60 - F ILM

Gay Oldman plays a bow tie wearing, monkey-headed, pipe smoking, wish granting mystical being.

Does anything else need to be said?

The only feature length film Directed/Written by Bob Gale, one of the mind's behind BACK TO THE FUTURE trilogy, INTERSTATE 60 plays like the pilot of a really great TV show. James Marsden (Cyclops from Wolverine) has to deliver a package along the fictional INTERSTATE 60 and runs into numerous different weird situations along the way. It's episodic and is filled with heavy handed moral lessons (Don't do drugs, respect yourself, don't judge a book by its cover) but a slightly dark tone and an exuberant imagination make it a fun ride. Great to spot all the tiny little cameos along the ways from the likes of Michael Jay Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Kurt Russel, and Chris Cooper.
