As some previously written reviews put forth... Those that would deny the greatness of this movie need to be handed simplistic plots and fed overbearingly bland characters and finalizing with endings the MIGHT be able to understand. Oh by theAs some previously written reviews put forth...

Oh by the way this movie is supposed to make you THINK, so if this is something you are unable to do- go watch Napoleon Dynamite (that would be your level). Expand

We have all the tools that indicate whether or not any "Person"(John)is ready for the big book of Alcoholics Anonymous, and the ever fearful looking "cowboy" who delivers the message to those who are willing to go to any length to get it. We have all the tools that indicate whether or not any "Person"(John)is ready for the big book of Alcoholics Anonymous, and the ever fearful looking "cowboy" who delivers the message to those who are willing to go to any length to get it. Bob the Indian, one of AA's co founders, The "RUTH" lessness of alcohol and two stepping from an unknown origin. And when awakening to nothing once again, having only "GRACE" (of one's higher power) to ever be saved and the 12 steps to be placed in order once again. Randy is self will run riot, and is the unfortunates-symbolism of constant regression and relapse. Dan and L. Ron (Hubbard)are just oddities mixed in. If you never looked, and simply passed by the trucker town, you would never see what could actually save you and help your "road" of destiny not be travelled so rough, as Bob put it. Many other symbols, but this essentially grasps-in a dark humor, and wonderful way, if you are brave enough to change your life by standing in the middle of no where, powerless, and being patient.
