The Road Movie: Russian dashcam videos come to the movie theater

I find this fascinating, an extended bit of schadenfreude. And an interesting business model.

Here’s the trailer.

  • I’m tempted to dismiss this as just a repackaging of what’s on YouTube.

    But… were talking about a filmmaker, who’s likely put in the time to get the original videos, before they’ve been run through a dozen different compressors in being passed around the internet. The time and thought in curation and editing together of clips is likely superior to what any compilation video YouTuber would crank out.

    I recognize a lot of the clips in the trailer as things I’ve already seen. Yet I may be willing to watch this. If nothing, just for the novelty of the presentation.
