A Little End of the World Gem on THIS!

No cable here, but THIS! Out of Grand Rapids, MI is showing one of my faves, Miracle Mile. It's a kind of kooky movie, low budget, and no-name actors. And Mare Winningham in a mullet hair cut.

The whole thing was filmed on location, probably within a mile of the Le Brea Tar Pits in LA.

It is a catchy little film with a Tangerine Dream soundtrack.

As I said, a little gem.

1. I still haven't seen that one...

...but I remember that when it came out, it received critical praise.

I'd take exception with the "no-name actors" designation. Mare Winningham and Anthony Edwards have had long careers in TV and film, and the former has been nominated for an Academy Award.

2. Yes, I like them both.

I didn't remember about Winningham's nomination, but her mullet cancels that.

I love this flick. It really is a gem of kooky shit. Not like Dr. Strangelove, it isn't a comedy. But a whole lotta stuff happens and the Tangerine Dream soundtrack keeps things moving along.

No spoilers. Just check it out.
