Outside Ozona ★★ 1998 (R)

Three sets of couples listen to a ranting all-night DJ (Taj Mahal) as they drive through the desolate Southwest. Wit Roy (Pollak) is an unemployed circus clown driving with his ex-stripper girlfriend, Earlene (Miller), trucker Odell Parks (Forster) comes to the aid of stranded Reba Twos-alt (Walker) and her grandmother, while feuding sisters Marcy (Fenn) and Bonnie (Styne) are driving to their father's funeral. Oh yeah, there's also a backroads serial killer on the loose. Looks good but doesn't make much of an impression. 100m/C VHS .
