Somewhere Alison Anders breathes a sigh of relief. Border Radio is no longer the worst title in the collection on DVD or Blu.

First of all, I thought we all agreed Norman Mailer stole that crown years ago. Secondly, Bodies, Rest, and Motion is an okay film

I'm sure Allison Anders cries herself to sleep every night because some goons on an internet forum don't like her movie.

If you like watching Eric Stoltz explain Kilz primer or Phoebe Cates do, um, nothing.

Oh, I would never argue it is a film with much in the way of dramatic stakes in play. But it's not without its lowkey charms

Diff'rent strokes and all I suppose. I was practically screaming at the screen watching that film because the dialogue was so awful and pretentious and nothing was happening… for me, it typifies the low point of 90s indie cinema by embodying every terrible cliche.

I had to laugh at that plot description for Bodies. As a Montanan I can tell you you don't go to Butte, Montana for anything. ANYTHING.

You say that as if Evel Knievel Days 2017 weren't just around the corner — "the only extreme sports festival of its kind in the entire World"!
Only doubt in my mind is whether I can get my diamond-studded whiskey cane past TSA on the way there.

You'd all certainly enjoy the Rocky Mountain Oyster Festival as well. (The Oysters are actually Bull Testicles and Montana holds an annual Testicle Festival.)

Anyone centering any plot point around Butte either has no idea what Butte is like or is a troll. Seriously you don't do this.

When I moved to Seattle I stopped at a McDonald's in Butte. I considered spending the night but decided to just keep going to Spokane.

That's my story.

To be fair, all I remember the characters doing is smoking pot and painting the walls, so I can't say the film glamorizes the locale

But it was photographed so beautifully in Wenders's Don't Come Knocking! It even earned a write-up in the Cool Montana Stories section of montanakids.com.

Wenders himself called it Beaut-iful.

this reminds me that border radio is in my FilmStruck queue to finally find out if it is justifiably loathed for its place in the collection or like hopscotch has been completely unjustifiably attacked for years.

People have been calling our bluff for years and it's never ever paid off against the house

There is such hatred for this film. I was fascinated by it twelve years ago when I first saw it, and it still hit all the same chords recently when I rewatched it. It's small and cozy, and I vibe with it a lot.
