Frustrating film, presented as a documentary (but fake) about a bloke from Louisiana whose stolen Lincoln is recovered in Detroit, so he goes to collect it and then tries to track down the thief ("Bill") across America, so it becomes a road movie. But the plot dribbles away somewhere in the middle of the film and it just becomes a series of sequences of random people in random places doing sad or futile things in their wasted lives. All of which is very poignant and sincere, but incoherent without any obvious purpose. That said, it is a haunting portrait of America's "underclass" and these folk are apparently real people telling their own stories. And it could have - with better construction - become a superb film. Worth finding and watching, despite its flaws. Excellent soundtrack/link music by Jonas Munk (aka Manual), who like the director is Danish.

Irritating camera work - pretending to be amateur hand-held filming so lots of blurred/shaky shots instead of proper photography for captures. Huge amount of background 1[*] stuff, but have only posted things which caught my attention as noticeable and/or possibly interesting - everything else seemed (with my very limited knowledge of US stuff) too ordinary/fuzzy/badly shown to be worth posting. But someone else who knows these sorts of things might find more entries worth posting if they watched it.

Reject - Detroit cab

Detroit cab is a 2003+ Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor [P71], Police truck is a 2002+ Ford Expedition, USPS trucks are 1999+ Sterling Cargos.

^ Promoting the Expedition as it's 2[*] and Cargos because we don't have many to new pages. If the Detroit cab is a Police Interceptor [P71], how has it become a cab? Do they get sold off when knackered to ordinary folk?
