    Just saw this recently and still not sure what to make of it. It was definitely interesting but strangely put together. It's done in black and white, has a cast of well known names and faces and all I can say about it is weird, but in a somewhat fascinating way.
    The cast, just to name a few:
    Johnny Depp, Gary Farmer, Billy Bob Thornton, Iggy Pop, Mili Avital, Crispin Glover, John Hurt, Michael Wincott, Lance Henriksen, and Robert Mitchum.

    I really liked that movie.

    Weird in a fascinating way describes it pretty well.

    It sort of reminded me of Camus' "The Stranger".

    I have a sneaking suspicion that the authors of that movie were going for that existentialist feel when they were crafting this film, too

    When I first started watching it with the flipping back and forth between Depp and the train I was a little sceptical but as it moved on I was drawn in occasionally out of shear morbid curiosity. I guess I can say I did like it.

    I found mine in the $5 video bin at Walfart. Texas Rangers was also on it.
