Best Bar in America

Just received, "The Best Bar in America" Ordered it from their website. WWW.bestbarinamerica.com Great story that features a man on a journey to see all the bars in the south west. He rides a BMW R/60 w/Velorex sidecar. I watched the movie and I really enjoyed it.

Got it, watched it twice so far. Love the scenery and the gal with the tree tatooed to her back.

Great scenery but the "acting" is high school drama club stuff. The naked girl is a plus though.

It is a small, 'indie' film project which manages to do pretty well for a group doing it all themselves and with amateur, non-hollywood actors. I bought it, partly because it has BMW airhead with sidecar, partly for the bar angle, and partly to support the small/indi movie scene.

I don't think they spent $100K to make it, but it is not bad - I'm keeping it on my shelf next to Easy Rider, ElectrGlide in blue, World's Fastest Indian...

Made for less than the cost of "A nice Harley" is the quote from the producers.
I got a kick out of watching the credits, under Gravediggers were listed the Ristau brothers {producers } and the 2 main caracters.

Just watched this on Vimeo on-demand. Great little indie movie with fabulous scenery. Definitely recommended.

Made me thirsty, though.

I understand 50% of the budget went into paying bar tabs. Really.
