Taxi guy is best part.

I do not understand why this movie has high ratings everywhere. It's terrible almost all of the way through. The only redeeming moments of the film, are the last ten minutes.

A certain affection towards this picture is guaranteed, considering it pioneered Canadian indie film, kick-started numerous careers.

Pretty boring Canadian dreck.

A Ponderous and brutally pretentious film. You can totally tell that Bruce McDonald was aching so badly to be the Canadian version of Michelangelo Antonioni or Ingmar Bergman. The acting is so comically bad, it can almost be viewed as a satire of terrible Canadian indie films.

But hey, not too bad for a graduate of Ryerson's film program.

Again, these movies start and you think, WTF and then you just get blown away! This movie is fantastic! Weird, wonderful and totally Canadian. Ramona was relatable, the other characters were both fun and fascinating and Don McKellar. This is the start of my love affair with Don McKellar. He played Russell the serial killer and he played it perfectly. That dry, perfectly pronounced way of speaking, I loved it! I love him!

This movie is just a lot of fun and great to watch, even if it is weird!

If you plot a graph of Bruce McDonald's career, it would be practically exponential, with each film (apparently with the exception of Picture Claire) completely burying its predecessor. Not that this is an awful film, it's got good intentions, but the good ideas are completely obscured by the more amateurish elements, especially during the appallingly ill-advised climax which takes a pretty clever way to wrap up the film and then throws it right out the window for reasons currently unclear. What's remarkable is how much better Highway 61 is, and how vastly better Hard Core Logo is than Highway 61. By all accounts, Bruce's follow-up to The Tracey Fragments should be on the level of Citizen Kane.

Quirky little canadian film. Love the use of black and white and the great play with contrast. The fact that it's set partly in Sudbury makes me laugh too! Great characters..especially Russel who wants to be a serial killer! Great all around!

Not the best acting, aside from McKellar. But just a crazy part-mock, part-music video, part-rock and roll road trip crazy mash up of a movie. A good time.
