Leningrad Cowboys Go America

Leningrad Cowboys Go America is a 1989 Finnish indie film about a Russian band traveling across the US to get to a gig at a wedding in Mexico. Nothing really happens. There's lots of shots out the car window of the scenery they pass and every now and then they play a gig at a dive bar. Jim Jarmusch has a cameo as a used car dealer in New York and I'd almost say it was like his movies where nothing really happens and people just have conversations, except that there's little talking in the movie. If that sounds like it would drive you crazy, then it probably would, but Team Gerdes really enjoyed letting it wash over us.
