This little-seen cult classic was directed by Neil Young, who once again credits the film to his cinematic alter ego Bernard Shakey. The surreal story concerns a gas station/diner near a nuclear megalopolis, and includes musical numbers by Young and DEVO. Though the visual style has been compared to Coppola's ONE FROM THE HEART, it might be more aptly described as THE WIZARD OF OZ on acid.
